The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices had first recommended that the HPV vaccines should be given to males back in October last year but the recommendations were not formalized until this week and were published in the Annals of Internal Medicine and Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

The committee recommended that the vaccines should be made routine for boys between 11 and 12 years of age while those between 13 to 21 years of age should be given "catch up" vaccinations.
