HPV and TX and JAMA, 2007-03-03

With all the kerfuffle over Texas’ mandatory HPV executive order (a littler underhanded if you ask me)  you would think that this was just a fight between religious groups and scientists (and maybe a little taint of pharma-money thrown in).

But IMHO there is still some questions as to the efficacy and safety of the vaccine and to what extent HPV actually infects women and who needs it and who are at risk. It’s seems a bit early to be making vaccinations mandatory.

I think I’ve editorialized a little too much here. I am ashamed.
