Increasing number of parents refusing HPV vaccine for daughters


More and more parents are just saying "no" to the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine, according to a new study by the Mayo Clinic. In fact, the researchers who conducted the study, which involved analyzing vaccination data for teens ages 13 to 17 in the 2008-10 National Immunization Survey of Teens, found that more than two in five parents surveyed believe the HPV vaccine is unnecessary and an increasing growing number of them express worry about potential side effects.
