In brief: Not mandatory

I am not a fan of making this shot a mandatory vaccine, and favor keeping it as a strongly recommended vaccine for all children.
This is mainly because its a virus spread through a voluntary action (sexual contact) that affects mainly teens and adults through a consented behavior and not passed to innocent and brief contacts.
