Well, this past summer when it was time for us to get the chicken pox booster that is required, the nurse got out two more needles for my 12 year old and I said, "whoa, what is that for?" She said, "well, they are not mandatory but one is for HPV and the other for meningitis." I said, "If it's not mandatory, you should ask me first." I wonder how many other parents just go in and let their kids shot with anything without asking or being asked? Needless to say my daughter did not get either because thankfully our doc did not recommend either at this time.
