Position Paper on HPV Immunization

The Catholic Medical Association (CMA) released a position paper on implementation of the new vaccine for HPV, Gardasil®, on January 18, 2007. The CMA recognizes that Gardasil®  is safe, effective, and its use can be ethically acceptable yet, at the same time, rejects efforts at the federal level, and in some states, to mandate that girls be vaccinated against HPV.

The position paper can be read by clicking here.
