Fitness, Health and Wellness Expert Dr. Veronica Anderson Publishes a New Blog Claiming Parents to Choose Whether Their Child Gets Vaccinated for HPV

Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, a weekly resource for wellness of mind, body and spirit, shares news of the federal immunization advisory about HPV vaccines for young boys.

NEW YORK, NY – December 9, 2011Dr. Veronica Anderson, Social Media Medicine Expert and Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the Real World, recently published a blog on her website that asks parents to weigh in on whether their 12 year old boy should be vaccinated against an STD commonly transmitted through homosexual activity. In her blog titled “HPV Vaccine Stirs Some Controversy,” Dr. Veronica suggests that our children may be over vaccinated.

Dr. Anderson writes, “Recent medical recommendations by the Center for Disease Control have caused a stir among decision makers. Informed by the CDC, our nation’s immunization advisory committee has asked that young boys between the ages of 11 and 12 are given a vaccine that protects against the sexually transmitted disease, human papillomavirus, or HPV. The recommendation has also advised that young men between ages 13 and 26 become vaccinated if they have not already been.”

“I understand both sides to this situation, but my concern is of another nature. I believe that we may be over vaccinating our children, and this one just adds to the list of medical treatments that we’re forcing on our next generation. I particularly believe that this type of vaccination should be a parental choice, and encourage parents to take serious consideration before choosing to sign their child up for our country’s every recommended preventative treatment,” explains Dr. Anderson.

Wellness for the Real World features information on developing a healthy and fit mind, body and spirit in today’s dynamic society. Dr. Anderson adds her easily understandable, fun-infused voice to the broad-audience discussion on today’s most popular medicines, alternative treatments, health policies and opinions of wellness – so that her listeners can benefit from truly vigorous life in the real world today.
