17. girls s/b tested for HPV BEFORE getting vaccine
Any girls getting this vaccine should be tested for HPV first.

If a girl already has the HPV infection before vaccination, the vaccine will increase likelihood
of getting cervical cancer:

Medical News Today also reports that in a May 18, 2006 report, the FDA staff stated that Merck clinical trial data indicated a potential for Gardasil to enhance cervical disease in subjects who had evidence of persistent infection with relevant HPV types prior to vaccination. Young girls and women now receiving the vaccine are not tested for active HPV infection before vaccination thereby leaving them vulnerable to the vaccine actually causing them to develop cancer
