Dr. Aliabadi reminds viewers that social media is not a source anyone should rely on when it comes to seeking medical advice and only accredited scientific websites should inform your decisions, especially when it comes to information about the HPV vaccine.
Pediatric infectious disease specialist Dr. Paul Offit notes despite anti-vaccination crusaders like the Gardasil girls, who claim the vaccine caused them fatigue and pain, the actual data about the vaccine says it does not lead to these issues and acknowledges it is hard to compel people with statistics when they feel emotional about an issue.
Dr. Aliabadi explains that HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection in America, where approximately 80 million people are currently infected and each year 14 million new people become infected. She notes the HPV vaccine is only preventive and cannot treat the disease and the point of the vaccine is to block patients from getting the infection. She also notes if someone is infected with 1 type of HPV, they should still get the vaccine to protect them from the other types of HPV.
So far 5 states have mandated students get the HPV vaccine and Dr. Aliabadi weighs on this approach saying, "If you educate patients, they are gonna end up getting the vaccine... but I think you have to give the option to parents to make a decision, especially for their younger children, and hope they trust science and vaccinate."
