perfect synopsis " A good reference to read is “Human papillomavirus vaccines: WHO position paper, May 2017.” Your google machine should find it easily. Bottom line: safe and effective"
a few comments :It doesnt protect against ovarian cancer ( prevention could be possible in > 30% bij salpingectomy, but research is ongoing)
vaccins are indeed one of medicine’s bigbest life savers troughout history
HPV is cause of 99,9 %of cervical cancer ( there are very rare cancer forms not to be reducted to HPV)
vaccins like the one wiht protection against 9 sybtypes of HPV herlps to reduce the number of premalignant laesions and cancers but not absolute ( reasons are Obvious; subtypes not in vaccin, diminished antibodies ,…)
so yes please protect womens, girls (and for that matter boys) with HPV vaccin
