Vaccine For HPV Doesn’t Lead To More Sex
A study published in Vaccine reveals that contrary to recent discussions, the HPV vaccination does not increase sexual activity in adolescent girls

This study published in Vaccine, examines whether or not there is any influence on sexual behaviour as a result of being offered or given the vaccination.
