Anyway, I am 26 right now, so my doctor recommended that I call my insurance company, make sure they'll pay for all three shots (I'd have to get the last one after I turn 27), and get the vaccine. It sounds like a good idea. But there's this probably-irrational thought going on in the back of my head about it too, because it's new, and *everybody's* getting it, and I've read too many suspense novels where everybody thinks the new drug is great and something goes horribly horribly wrong. I know, kind of stupid. I was vaccinated against hepatitis (A?) several years ago and that went fine. But in a culture that's totally overdrugged right now, I can't be the only one who's paranoid.
So, I'm kind of on a poll kick lately, how about a poll?
HPV vaccine? (please only take this poll if you're female)
Want to get it
Can't afford it
Don't want it
Haven't thought about it
