The HPV vaccine works!
In Australia, they started vaccinating girls/women against HPV in 2007.
In 2007, 11.5% of women under 21 (age-range most likely to get the vaccine before they were sexually active) were diagnosed with genital warts.
0.85% in 2011.
0% in women under 21 who got the HPV vaccines.
For women 21-30 (only maybe got the vaccine, and even if they did, maybe after they were sexually active), it went from 11.3% to 3.1%.
For women over 30, there was no drop.
In other words, the data suggests you need to get girls the HPV vaccine before they are sexually active, and then the vaccine does its job protecting them from the vax HPVs.
Whats more– Men were protected from HPV when the women got the HPV vaccine. Incidence in men dropped from 12.1% to 2.2%, and 18.2% to 8.9% in those same age ranges. None in the men over 30.
Give the vaccine to girls before they are sexually active?
Vaccines protect everyone?
Why, thats what those evil scientists have been saying from the very beginning! And a blatant, obvious example of herd immunity in action! Its as if the scientists… actually understand the science of vaccinations…
