"I have studied FDA and CDC recommendations regarding vaccines in limited detail. Like most new medications or research projects, vaccines are commonly under scrutiny. It is understandable that a person who is not educated on how vaccines work would be apprehensive about them. For me, personally, if there is anything I can do to help reduce the risk of developing cancer, I want to do it."
"I have studied the use of Gardisil as a preventive vaccine. While I understand that some people view vaccines as a negative option in preventive care, I am supportive of any attempt to help reduce the risk of disease. I have found that the benefits outweigh the risks associated with Gardisil, like any other vaccine."
