Human Papillomavirus: Cancer and Prevention, Why Doesn’t Everyone Receive HPV Vaccination?

Authors: J Mullin
Comments: 17 Pages.

Human papillomavirus is a highly transmissible through the skin to skin contact and has many strains, with strains HPV-16/18 being high-risk HPV, that is highly correlated with cervical, oropharyngeal, anal, and penile cancers. But these strains are highly preventable by using two of the available vaccines, Gardasil (2vHPV) and Gardasil 9 (9vHPV). Vaccination is between the ages of 9 to 26 years of age is recommended. But even with the advent of the vaccine, the vaccination rate in many countries remains low. Women and men who have sex with men are at higher risk for HPV-associated cancers. So why does not every eligible person receive the vaccination? Factors for apprehension include fear of early sexual behaviors, parental choice, and insufficient knowledge. But the greater good principle shows that since vaccination is for the greater good, it thus outweighs other moral objections to vaccination. It is recommended that all eligible for vaccination should receive it, regardless of sex, to add for a herd immunity and help lower HPV-associated cancer incidence.
