Nine year old boy already received the HPV vaccination?!
Patient : Back in July, my friend got her 9 year old son some vaccinations, and she let the doctor give him the HPV vaccination, which is not yet required for boys. I recently saw the news headlines where it is being considered for boys starting at age 11. I am wondering if my friend's 9 year old son getting the HPV vaccination that early is too risky for him. Was this even legal? I am concerned about this.
