    Just out of interest, anyone not had it, and why?




    And if you're a guy, I'm not surprised you haven't had it. :p:

    I haven't had it, because I'm 19, and therefore just missed the vaccinations.

    I was upset why the woman on the stall that saids "NHS" had absolutely no interest in talking to me.

    Then I realised it was for cervical cancer.

    Old people don't get cancer, it'll be right.

    No, I would have to pay a lot of money to get it done.

    I think I was about 18 or 19 when they started doing it on the NHS, and by then I was considered over the hill...

    I shouldn't have had it done - I was closer to 19 than 18 when they sent me a letter saying I could have it. I got the first two, came back six months later for the third one and they told me that I shouldn't have gotten it in the first place and I'd have to pay for the last one. I did pay for the last one (it was one prescription charge of £4), but I was quite annoyed - if I shouldn't have gotten it then I should not have got it all, not buy one, get two free.

    You got a vaccination against HPV, that most of us would have to pay hundreds of pounds for, for the price of a decent lunch.

    Don't *****.

    I'm six months to old to qualify for the free ones. Which is annoying. Someone I know looked into paying for it herself, and it's quite expensive for the full course of injections.

    When my younger sister was in hospital, i met 4 girls who were pretty much paralysed from the jab.
    There were other girls there as well with not quite as serious side effects, but they still had to be put in hospital..

    So my mum wouldn't let me or my sister have it.
    Although even if my mum did let me, i have a serious phobia of needles, so wouldn't have had it anyway.

    I hope turning down a vaccine does not mean you are the kind of person who may ignore a screening service appointment too. Let us not forget Ms Goody.
