I got the HPV vaccine yesterday. I know I am out of the recommended age group but I decided I wanted to be fully immunized against everything and was curious as it is supposed to hurt more than other vaccines. I didn’t think it did.

And now when pro infectious diseases and pro cancer people won’t be able to accuse me of promoting a vaccine I haven’t had!

I also appreciate I am a public person of sorts so maybe me getting the HPV vaccine will encourage others or help raise awareness!

I just feel really strongly that if you have the privilege to be in the public eye you should use that privilege wisely instead of, say, selling useless jade rocks or promoting "medical mediums."
