Not needed??? It protects against 75% of cervical cancers! See - now this is what I personally find really weird about all the anti vaxx stuff.
"it only protects against 75% of cancers", "it only protects against 85%-59% of whooping cough" "MMR isn't 100% effective" (yeah - only 95-95% effective) What a very strange excuse not to vaccinate. I mean - by all means don't vaccinate. But to say that 75% protection is somehow bad??
Uh oh - I feel another coming on
I don't think people who get it without knowing much about it are stupid. I think from the advertising it would be fairly easy to think it is a cancer vaccine. You hear it all the time.
I personally am not anti vax anyway. We are non vaxxers at this stage but always open to hearing everything and re evaluating. I have never tried to push any anti vax agenda and I can see the benefits too
That's if you were talking to me!

Both up to date
In some people obviously it isn't needed (like if you are older and already sexually active etc). But if this vaccine prevents 3 out of 4 women getting cervical cancer then I can only see it as a great thing. My boys will deffo be getting it!
