Mandating hpv vaccination


Perry reiterated his belief that he made a mistake by issuing the executive order, which allowed parents to opt out.“If I had it to do over again, I would have done it differently.” The episode illustrates the difficulties Perry faces in navigating competing Republican interest groups, and it resurrects allegations of cronyism that have dogged the Texas executive throughout his political career.It soon emerged that Perry was close to one of the lobbyists who was pushing for the order and who worked for the vaccine’s New Jersey-based manufacturer.That lobbyist, Mike Toomey, had served as Perry’s chief of staff and has since helped found a super PAC aimed at boosting Perry’s bid for the presidency.

Over a 4- to 5-year period of observation, they have been nearly 100 percent effective in preventing incident persistent infections and cervical intra-epithelial neoplasia by HPV types in the vaccine.Perry, who long defended the vaccine mandate, reversed his position on the issue as he launched his GOP presidential bid, calling the order “a mistake” and saying he agrees with the Texas legislature’s decision to overturn it.“The fact of the matter is that I didn’t do my research well enough to understand that we needed to have a substantial conversation with our citizenry,” Perry told reporters on the campaign trail in August.Gardiner said that the organization has three main goals with regards to HPV vaccinations: to make HPV vaccinations an option instead of a mandate, to make it more difficult for RIDOH to mandate another vaccination in the future and to advocate for informed consent.Once a vaccine is mandated, “all the risks and benefits that the patient has the right to know tend to go by the wayside,” she said.The recognition that invasive carcinoma of the uterine cervix is the end result of some genital tract human papillomavirus (HPV) infections and the development of prophylactic vaccines to prevent these infections are major recent achievements of public health medicine.
