first off..... there is most definately a link between HPV and cervical cancer. Secondly, this vaccine comes with a lot of risks.

My view is that we should wait and see.......... but screening should be done nationwide
we should wait and see what secondary effects this vaccince has
I'd not take it just now anyway. But if it proves safe in the future then yes it should be available

In the meantime, I hate Harnety but screening is ultimate.
