Would He Get an HPV Vaccination to Protect You? Um, No

https://media.zenfs.com/en-US/blogs/partner/vaccine.jpgWould your guy get an HPV vaccination to reduce his risk of passing on the virus to you, and in the process, help protect you from cervical cancer? Definitely, right? Well, oddly, most guys say no thanks to that idea. Crazy? Selfish? Uncaring? You decide.

But, guys don't seem to be that interested in getting a quick poke in the thigh--even if it could mean saving the life of the woman they love. This is all according to a study conducted by researchers at Florida State University (FSU), who found that guys were a little cavalier about the vaccine. In fact, even when told convincing information about the link between a potential male vaccination and a reduced cervical cancer rate for women, guys still reported that they were unlikely to get poked.

Well, thanks a lot guys! Harumph.
