I know. I know. I write some comical notes here. You might enjoy the recipes I post here. Many people appreciate the local funeral arrangement information that I include in my blog. But the main reason I write my blog postings is to keep you updated. The health of the people we love is about as important as it gets. When I have the opportunity to tell you about immunizations, treatments, etc out there that can enrich our children's health, I'm going to mention it here.
In the past, I have posted about an immunization that was recently released for girls from 9-years-old to 26-years-old. It is called a HPV shot. It is to safeguard our women against HPV which is a sexually transmitted disease that can go on to cause genital warts and cervical cancer.
Until just a few minutes ago, I was not aware of the fact that our boys from 9-years-old to 26-years-old can also benefit from this injection. In males, HPV can go on to cause genital warts, tongue and anal cancer
