Only mandatory vaccines are equitable

No one likes the goverment stepping into your family and saying what should and should not be put into your kid. But, if they don't, then only the folks who can afford it will be safe from HPV. A real catch. This editorial in the SF Chronicle really sums it up for California. California cannot end up like Michigan (failed to pass the vaccine) or like New Hampshire (passed but did not make mandatory). If passed, Bill AB 16 would require vaccination of young girls as early as July 2008. Starting with the logical target group, young girls, can only pave the way for other at risk groups (gay men at risk for anal cancer for example).
