HPV Vaccine

Via Atrios and The Light of Reason.

I am apparently a bit behind on this news: GlaxoSmithKline and Merck have both developed new vaccines to prevent human papilloma virus, a cause of cervical cancer, which in turn is a significant risk for women with HIV. Earlier reports on these vaccines were available last November. Current reports are now addressing some of the difficulties of getting social acceptance of the vaccines and of licensure for production in other countries.

Tell me again why a parent would put a child in a car without a seatbelt?
