Indiana Senate Introduces HPV Vaccination Bill

There is also a bill in the Statehouse that would require all Hoosier girls to be vaccinated against HPV.

All 13 women in the State Senate introduced the bill that requires the vaccination against the human papilloma virus.

That virus can lead to cervical cancer.

The vaccine would be given to girls before that enter the sixth grade.

It is similar to a law Michigan lawmakers proposed last year.

Some have criticized the bills saying vaccinating against HPV could encourage kids to have sex.

Under Indiana’s bill students would not be turned away from school if their parents opted out of getting them the vaccination.
