Tell NPR to Report BOTH Sides of the HPV Vaccine Debate!

On February 20, NPR’s All Things Considered aired a segment lamenting the low HPV vaccination rates in American children (to date, 33% of girls and less than 7% of boys have received all three recommended doses of the vaccine). Unfortunately, NPR reporters apparently did no independent journalistic research on the subject, because both the segment and its companion article parroted a recent CDC report and claimed, “Studies to date have shown no significant safety problems” with the HPV vaccine.

This is simply incorrect. Write NPR and ask them to report both sides of the HPV vaccine debate. Their latest story on the vaccine left out important information that families across the country need in order to make informed decisions.
