HPV Vaccine Effectiveness

In the midst of a decision that young girls in Texas should have four more years before the HPV vaccine could be required, there is new research about the effectiveness of that immunization.

The study in the New England Journal of Medicine involved more than 10,000 women ages 15 to 26 finding that the HPV vaccine is nearly 100 percent effective against the two strains linked to most cervical cancers. The study also says no major side effects have been reported.
