A cervical cancer vaccine that has been recommended only for U.S. residents has become a requirement for all new female immigrants ages 11 to 26, sparking an outcry over the order's safety and cost.
"It's outrageous," said Sara Sadhwani, project director for the Asian Pacific American Legal Center in Los Angeles. "It seems absolutely premature to mandate this for immigrant women."
The new requirement went into effect Aug. 1 and will affect more than 130,000 immigrants a year.

Guys don't get nearly anywhere near the amount of problems women get from HPV though. Doesn't cause cancer in men as far as I know. So for men to get this is a bit over the top.

So these women are the test subjects I suppose? When I read your post I imagine mice being carefully selected and placed into seperate cages.

I think RapinBats has it pegged. There have already been problems with this vaccine among those voluntarily vaccinated. There is a current backlash against vaccinations period. The pharmaceutical companies have to get their return on investment on schedule, so why not make it mandatory for those who will do anything to get into the US. For them it's probably a small price to pay.

Yet, I see patients every day come in to get the vaccination

I don't trust any of 'their' drugs or vaccines.
After seeing this news I'm wondering if it may be a form of sterilization.
I don't think anyone should be forced to be vaccinated for Cancer.
