Yet other evidence has come across which strengthens the recommendation that little girls should be provided with human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. A study has been taken out, which has reinstated the instructions being given by experts to girls parents.
The study has unveiled that it is not necessary that only those girls can be diagnosed with HPV, who have indulged in sexual activities. Researchers have found that even the girls, who have not been into such activities, have been carrying the strains of the virus.
Seems to be shocking, but study researchers said that it is possible. There are ways by which the HPV virus can pass on to girls, who are classified into virgin category. Two ways by which the virus can pass to girls is transfer of virus from genital to genital and second ways to transfer of strain from hands to genitals.
There are strong chances that parents would get stirred, after reading the news. It is a common perception among parents of young girls, said experts that they think providing the vaccine at the age of 11 or 12 is early. However, the study is expected to help them to take a right decision for their daughter.
