Colorado Cervical Cancer Vaccine Bill Proposed

Colorado is the latest state to propose a bill to make Gardasil, Merck's cervical cancer vaccine, mandatory for all girls entering the 6th grade.

At least 18 states are considering such measures this year. Drug giant Merck & Co., which makes the only vaccine now available, has funded a group called Women in Government and many of the people who have introduced the bills, including the Colorado sponsor, Sen. Suzanne Williams, D-Aurora, are members.
