The Ethics and Politics of Compulsory HPV Vaccination [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
On September 12, 2006, 3 months after the Food and Drug Administration licensed a vaccine against human papillomavirus (HPV), Michigan lawmakers became the first in the United States to propose that vaccination be compulsory for girls entering sixth grade. Parents who objected would be able to opt out of the requirement under the same provisions that apply to other vaccinations. The bill passed the state senate by an overwhelming margin a week later and awaits consideration by the house. Other states are likely to follow Michigan's lead. The development of Gardasil, Merck's HPV vaccine, is of major public health importance. . . .
