States should approve mandates that girls receive an HPV vaccine because it is the "best way" to ensure that all children -- "not just those who are aware of it and can afford it" -- get an HPV vaccine, a New York Times editorial says. The "strongest arguments" against quickly mandating HPV vaccination all "tend to be practical and financial," according to the editorial. It is possible that "unexpected side effects could emerge," and health workers "need to be certain that there are stable supplies, adequate insurance coverage, ample public money to vaccinate low-income children and physician support," the editorial says. Mandating vaccination would "force the health care system to get cracking" on such issues, the editorial says (New York Times, 2/26).
