At least 41 states and the District of Columbia have
introduced legislation to require inoculation with, fund, or educate the public
about the human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV), despite the fact that its actual
effectiveness is unknown—at best it may protect against only two of the fifteen
cancer-causing strains of the virus—and the side effects and reactions from the
vaccine are sometimes severe.
In New York, AB
699 requires that all children born after January 1, 1996, be vaccinated
against HPV (in addition to the already mandated vaccines against polio, mumps,
measles, diphtheria, rubella, chicken pox, meningitis, pertussis, tetanus,
pneumococcal disease, and hepatitis B).
Ask your legislators to defeat this new bill.
