STD Vaccination To Be Made Mandatory

Girls ages 10 and up will be required to take a vaccine against a common sexually transmitted disease closely linked to cervical cancer called human papillomavirus (HPV). Gardasil, the first vaccine to fight cancer, was included for the first time in the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) annual schedule of recommended childhood immunizations, released earlier this month. It will surely prevent the cause of a cervical cancer, but most people find it offensive to implement such mandatory vaccination.

There may be a real problem out there, but they should deal with the kids that have the problem, and not all the innocent children who wouldn't even think about anything close to sexual contact.
I guess it is better to be safe than really really sorry.
