Why are they pushing HPV vaccines on my 8 year old child

Our school sent out forms for parents to opt for HPV vaccines for our son.  Why are they pushing a vaccine like this, that is only effective for a few short years onto an 8 year old!!  Is the BC Medical system in cahoots with Big Pharma?  I remember they tried this in Texas and the Governor had to apologize.

It looks like it lasts for 9 or 10 years ?

You said "to opt for HPV vaccine"? So opt out. This is hardly pushing.

Hi Faramir, my daughters are now 27 and 23 and it was suggested/pushed on me at least 10-12 years ago. This is nothing new. Gardadsil? At that time I was not sure but our family doctor said they have until age 24 (I think) to decide. My youngest was around 12 at the time so I decided they could decide as adults if they wanted it. It was totally experimental at that time. My youngest rec'd the vaccine and my oldest opted out. Your child has time to decide for themselves. There is no rush. You can relax :)

If kids are sexually active at a young age, it does offer protection for future cancers. From what I read up on years ago.

Thanks for sharing :)

Thanks Teena it just smells of government and Big Pharma conspiring together.  As much as I am a capitalist I think it is always bad news when the private sector makes deals with government.
