Practices suggested in the literature to reduce non-medical exemptions include: In summary, vaccination requirements that reach more children through a broad range of facilities, that have more requirements for receiving an exemption, that require parental documentation of exemption requests, and that are implemented with strong enforcement and monitoring may help promote higher rates of vaccination coverage, and in turn, lower rates of VPDs.Ongoing provider outreach and public education about vaccines and the diseases they prevent may also lead to such an increase.But there's so much misinformation out there that leads people to make the wrong choices for themselves and their children," Offit said.Bachmann perpetuated that misinformation when she implied later that the vaccine could cause permanent harm to children, Offit said.Most people with HPV never develop symptoms or health problems.Most HPV infections (9 out of 10) go away by themselves within two years.My prediction is that, slowly, state by state, such mandates will be enacted because the vaccine is safe — and who does not wish to prevent as much cancer as they can?
If it was given to 100 percent of young girls today, then 20 to 25 years from now, there would be an 80 percent reduction in cervical cancer incidence, he said. William Schaffner, chairman of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine: "The HPV vaccine is a wonderful advance in the prevention of cancer — for girls and women certainly, but also for boys and men. Whether all girls should be mandated to receive the vaccine is best left to the public in each state where the issue can be discussed and debated.In last night's GOP presidential candidates debate, Rep. Rick Perry for his 2007 legislation mandating, through an executive order, that the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine be given to young girls in his state. "It's a violation of a liberty interest." The HPV vaccine protects against strains of HPV that cause cervical cancer. And to have innocent little 12-year-old girls be forced to have a government injection through an executive order is just flat-out wrong," Bachmann said during the debate.CDC’s Public Health Law Program (PHLP) has compiled state statutes and regulations regarding school vaccinations.For more information, please visit the State School and Childcare Vaccination Laws.
