Round up the kids: The Gardasil vaccine is for both boys and girls, so it is up to each family to round up the kids and take them to the doctor for shots and annual check-ups. The way to prevent infection (and future transmission) of the 2 "bad" strains of cancer-causing HPV, and the 2 strains that are the main cause of genital warts, is to vaccinate kids in middle school or high school (definitely before college).
