HPV Vaccine Bill Passes in State Senate

The Indiana Senate passed a bill tonight that would help parents learn more about HPV and its link to cervical cancer.

The bill requires schools to provide information about the HPV vaccine, and its availability.

A government panel recommends that all girls get the shot at age 11 or 12, before they become sexually active.

At least 18 states are debating whether to require the HPV vaccine.

The bill now heads to the Indiana House.
