Vaccinate Yourself For Others

A Centers For Disease Control panel is recommending the HPV vaccine for boys. Amy Davidson is on board:

Vaccinating boys keeps them from getting sick, and that may be the main way this is sold. But, as the C.D.C. panel noted, it "may also provide indirect protection of women." One would think that raising boys to be men who protect women (and other men), directly or indirectly, would be a conservative priority as well.

Dan Savage has been touting this issue on his slog and lovecast.
