Senate Roll Call 720 on
2006 Senate Bill 1416: Mandate HPV vaccine for sixth grade girls

To require the parents or guardian of every female child entering sixth grade in a public or nonpublic school to either have the child vaccinated with the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, or sign a statement to the effect that he or she had received information schools would be required to distribute on the connection between HPV and cervical cancer, and had elected for the child not to receive the vaccine. The bill would also establish a child immunization advisory committee in the Department of Community Health, with members appointed by legislative leaders and the governor. The committee would review and make recommendations to the legislature on new vaccinations that should be mandated for children (with opt-out provisions for parents who object for reasons of conscience). The legislature then would have 45 days to approve or reject a recommendation. If there was no vote, the mandate-with-exceptions would go into effect.
