dc.description.abstract The purpose of this paper is to discuss recent legislative changes about requiring mandatory vaccination of adolescents with Gardasil. This paper will look at the ethical issue of a state mandate requiring an adolescent to be vaccinated with Gardasil. This topic is extremely important to us as nurses since both medical providers and school educators need to be aware of media reporting in order to alleviate fears that the public may experience about the Gardasil vaccine. Additionally it is our responsibility to inform adolescents as well as parents about the risk factors associated with contracting HPV; the importance of maintaining yearly Pap smears; and the usefulness of the Gardasil vaccine in preventing cervical cancer. en_US
