I think this is fantastic. Ok so it's £405, not so fantastic, and I believe that if you are over 25 and/or have had multiple sexual partners (or if your partner has) then it may not be worth getting as the chances are you will already have the virus, but still. As it turns out, I'm eligible, so yes, I will be first in line.
I doubt the NHS is gonna pay for anyone out of school to have the jab and if they really do have something that can give you a 70% chance of immunity against the virus, then that is something to celebrate.
One of my colleauge's daughters has just had it done in school, but before she went in she was extremely worried that she would die from it. This was all brought about from the media's ridiculous coverage of one girl, very sad that she died, but it had nothing to do with the vaccination. Some (lots?) of my colleague's daughter's friends have chosen not to have it. This is so sad and makes me so angry - it's something that may stop you getting cancer! How is there even any question about whether or not to have it done?
And to all those folks who think giving 12 year olds the jab will lead to an increase in teenage sex -
If the threat of AIDs, genital warts and pregnancy doesn't put young folks off, the threat of cancer sure has hell won't.
A vaccination against cancer. I never thought I'd see the day.
