New York Times ran an interesting article about the history of the HPV vaccine. Fluffy, but very interesting to history geeks and sex geeks alike. And sex-history nerds? We hardly know what to do with ourselves! Thanks to CD for the tip.
Incidentally, when my sister enquired at her clinic as to whether they'd be carrying the vaccine, she was told that they would automatically offer it to all of their patients 14-24 years old. Her name is already on the list. It's funny how even though sex-safety is such a broad, community based thing for me, when it's that close to home -- and it's working -- I just want to cry in relief.
