    Default HPV vaccine

    Will you get your teens vaccinated for HPV?

    Thoughts on this vaccine?

    Tbh, I'm not sure. Probably leaning more towards no but it's still a few years away til we hit the teens so who knows.

    Sorry was running out the door before.

    Why/why not will you be getting it?

    Has anyone looked into efficacy, adverse effects? I will be looking into it further, haven't so far. But I remember there being some pretty out-there claims of serious adverse effects. Wonder if they were proved to be true or not?

    My DS1 got the letter about this in his high school info pack for next year, hence why I'm thinking about it.

    That's pretty much why I'm not too sure. I was in the age bracket to get it for free when it first came out but personally I'd never go and get a brand new vaccine. Then all these horror stories came out about it, girls were having serious side effects and I remember one dying as a result.
    I haven't looked into in recently though.

    Yes, although I was very early pregnant with DS (ttc), so I do worry what/ if any long term issues he may have.

    I would. I participated in a drug trial for a "new" HPV vaccine about 8+ years ago. All I know is that I received either Gardasil or the trial vaccine, so am protected. I don't recall any issues except for localized redness/swelling etc. If I could reduce the risk of any of my kids getting a cancer or sharing something herpes with a sexual partner then I'm all for it.
