HPV vaccine article

I like the non-judgemental way this article sums up HPV:

Human papillomavirus is "sort of the common cold of sexual activity, it's extremely common"

Hmmm, I wonder why they cut it off at age 26? I noticed it did say that with further testing that age range could be extended, I just wonder why they stopped it where they did...

That is strange... I don't know how they arrived at that number.

I mean, what if you were a 28-year-old virgin who wanted the vaccine? Seems like kind of an arbitrary cutoff.

I too am glad they downplayed the "STD" stigma of HPV. It is so very common & can hang around for forever & day before, if ever, showing symptoms. I will be checking to see if my dd-now 9 will be covered by insurance, if not, Flex spending will be upped for next year. I'm not sure where they come up with the "26", but am in agreement, if you're a virgin, get vaccinated.

I don't know for sure why the age 26 cap is currently in effect for the FDA's approval of the vaccine, but I'd guess it has to do with the age of the women that were involved in the research studies.
