HPV Vaccine

Federal health officials say not many teen girls are getting a vaccination said to help prevent things like cervical cancer.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown reports in this edition of Housecall for Health:

Teenager girls are not, as a whole, completing the vaccine for human papillomavirus... The infection doctors say could cause cervical cancer. A phone survey by the CDC shows only 54% of young women are even getting the first of the three rounds of injections. The HPV vaccine is controversial among some parents who say it make permissible sexual activity in teens, though many schools now require it for teen girls attendance.
