Vacination may be a social responsibility for readily comunicable deseases like polio and measles, not for the HPV vacine.

Pehaps, but when people have sex, they are consiously taking various risks and making a choice, unlike the others deseases I mentioned which can be caught from merely beimg in the vicinity of an infected person. Anyone old enough to have sex is old enough to decide for themselves whether ot not the need/want this paticular vaccine. A possible link with infertility has been found with this vaccine, although further study is neccessary to confirn/debunk that. Also the risk from HPV is minimal. IF you get it, you have a SLIGHTLY incresed risk for cervical cancer, which then may or may not be the fast progressing dangerous form. The HPV vacine also only protects against a few forms of the virus. All vaccines cary some risk. You are in essence forcing your body to develop an immunoreaction, you know what else is an immunoreaction, anaphylactic shock. For airborne communicable deseases that have an immediate risk association I can accept the social responsibility, herd immunity argument. However for something like HPV, which requires a consious action to catch, and requires multiple steps from catching the desease before there is even a risk, I feel it is right to allow the individual to make their own risk assessment.

Skeptical Baby Meme | TEENS HAVING SEX KNOW OF ILLNESS OR ASSESS RISK? TEENS CAN'T GET VAC WITHOUT PARENTAL OK. | image tagged in memes,skeptical baby | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Our sexual permissiveness st virtually any age has allowed children to make decisions before they are ready, thus requiring vacs and birth control measures through parents

So you're saying that because some teens may bad decisions, ALL teens should be forced to have the HPV vaccine (well, actually only female teens) and forced to be on birth control. Both of which have been shown to have negative health consequences in at least some cases.
At some point our bad decisions become OUR bad decisions (and that includes teens). Or are you one of those people who favors having the government micromanage our lives to protect us from our mildest transgressions?

Nope, but with Obamacare taking us into socialized medicine each person's bad health decisions become everyone's financial burdens. We shall see the health police strictly enforce no smoking, no drug abuse, no over eating, avoidance of STDs, birth control for the poor, etc in an effort to contain extraordinary costs associated with such lifestyles. With the failed repeal of Obamacare in the year when it had the best chance for repeal it will ever have, cwe are now stuck with it. And in a few short years my predictions will become law. Medicine can't exceed 1/6 of our GDP without resulting poverty to the average person and lack of growth in other industries, We simply can't spend all our time and money on health insurance and deductible payments and taxes.

Agreed that's how it will become, but that doesn't make it right.
