HPV Vaccine Age Guidelines

The age guidelines for the HPV vaccine are out:

ATLANTA - An influential government advisory committee Thursday recommended the routine vaccination of 11- and 12-year-old girls against the sexually transmitted virus that causes cervical cancer.

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices also said the shots can be started for girls as young as 9, at the discretion of their doctors. And it recommended a "catch-up" vaccination for women 13 to 26 who have not been previously vaccinated.
