Immunizations

Some states are trying to pass laws that would require all 11 and 12 year old girls to get the HPV vaccine before they are allowed to start 6th grade. How strongly do you agree or disagree that it is okay to have these laws ONLY if parents can opt out if t hey want to?1

2Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.

39th-12th grade includes those in college or other post high school education.
