Some Colorado Parents Oppose HPV Vaccine Bill

Some people in Colorado are upset about the proposed HPV vaccine bill to make the vaccine mandatory for all girls entering the 6th grade in that state. One parent said:

"This is a bill by Merck to pad the coffers of its shareholders under the guise of protecting girls," Heidi Hendricks, a parent of a teen daughter, said at a heated public hearing on the measure.

Supporters of the bill and those like it in other states insist the vaccine has been proven safe. However, they are not being completely upfront with parents and the public in general about the slightly elevated risk of autoimmune disease in Gardasil study participants.
