A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advisory committee has recommended that human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines should be made compulsory for all males between the ages of 11 and 21 years.
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.
