    Glad to see this recommendation. This will now ensure that gay/bi men are protected with each other, and also gets to the problem of men transmitting to women/girls who may not have been vaccinated.

    I'm glad. I often have parents of male teens express concern about why the vaccine is only being recommended to females. Now I'll be able to say, "It's not!" Now if only there were a test for HPV status--men really freak out when they hear that there is no test for them. Condoms, condoms, condoms people! :twocents:

    My boys are vaccinated. My youngest finished his series last december. I did that to protect them because there is a small risk for their own health from the virus. (cancer of the penis, anus and back of the throat).

    But, I did it for their future significant others as well.
