Hi, I'm new here ,but I had to share this...

 

I called to make a well check appointment for my 9 year old twin boys. When I was making the appointment she said, "Hold on, let me see if they are due for any shots....Oh, no, all they need this time is Gardasil."

9 year old boys,, really????

Yep. They recently added boys for Gardasil, and 9 years old is the absolute minimum age. Your doctor's office sure is eager!

I'm still wondering if we are going to see undesirable reproductive problems in both boys and girls in the future because of this. I dont believe enough testing has been done.
