    Checkaslovakia begins HPV vaccination

     

    Checkaslovakia, yesterday, began vaccinations with, Merck's Gardasil vaccine to end cervical cancer in their country. Countries like Checkaslovakia which has a population that is highly literate. The cost of the vaccine is $456 for the series of three shots. The importance of the vaccine "if understood" by the people is the most important issue about the success of the Merck or GlaxoSmithKline HPV vaccine. In the United States, the Bible Belt may be the last areas to accept the HPV vaccine. Again, it is an issue of lack of information. Question all over the board are not being answered by public schools, libraries, or even medical professionals in these regions. The belief that the virus is only transmitted by sexual contact and that condom use is the answer is a wide spread. Many medical professionals in these states avoid open discussion with individuals and groups---maybe because of their lack of knowledge about the virus.

    GlaxoSmithKline may have an advantage due to lack of undertanding about the virus that will offer them time to bring on their HPV vacccine in April, 2007.

    The HPV vaccine will ultimately exceed the number of people vaccinated with polio in 1954. The largest vaccination in the history of the world will ultimately be the outcome.
