    That bugs me too. Many people get it when they don't need to because of the way it's marketed. I worry that it gives a false sense of security too.

    I agree that some stupid/misinformed people would think that they're safe from cervical cancer because of it. I personally just like to have as many bases as possible covered.

    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 didn't say it's not needed!!!! I'm saying for someone like me it is of absolutely no benefit. People get it when they may not need it because they think it does something it doesnt is what I said.

    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!

    For ME it is unnecessary. It was a lot of money, I spoke to my doctor about it, and me not getting it has no affect on others. For me to not get the whooping cough or hep b may affect the babies in my care, but how does this affect others? Because of my lifestyle it is deemed unnecessary.

    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!

    Just to be clear, I am in no way against it. It has simply been deemed unnecessary for me. Yes I said unnecessary, but I was not referring to any other person.

    And that's all I was saying. I just wish there was more education about it. It makes me uncomfortable.
