It is the second most common sexually transmitted disease after chlamydia and the NHS spends at least £46million a year treating the infection, plus a further £4million on other conditions it causes.
The current HPV vaccine, Cervarix, introduced for all girls aged 13 to 18 in 2008, prevents against the strains that cause cervical cancer, but leaves young women at risk of developing genital warts.
Now 500 doctors and other sexual health workers are backing a campaign by the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV to get the jab replaced with Gardasil, which protects against both conditions.
Ok – this is good….UK can take down GlaxoSmithKline and Cervarix…that is one bad vaccine out of the way. They can introduce Gardasil and see the adverse reactions sore…..and then will realize how bad this vaccine really is…
