Cervical Cancer Is A Killer

Because cervical cancer is a killer, schoolgirls in Britain will be vaccinated against the virus that causes it. They are going to go further than is recommended by experts with all aged 12-13 eligible and a catch-up campaign up to 18. It is thought that vaccinating from human papilloma virus (HPV) could save hundreds of lives in the UK each year. I know I have heard a lot of news about vaccinating your girls in the United States as well but I don't know that it is settled yet. I believe they need the parents permission to vaccinate even younger.
