29. But you can't compare small pox to HPV
Small pox is a highly contagious, disfiguring and sometimes fatal disease. HPV is not. About half of all women are walking around with some kind of HPV virus and don't even know it. Only a small percentage will develop cervical cancer because of it.

The vaccine is only effective against two strains of HPV. It's not effective against other types of HPV known to cause cervical cancer.
