South Carolina Lawmaker Introduces HPV Vaccine Bill

South Carolina Lawmaker Introduces HPV Vaccine Bill.

The AP (1/15) reports South Carolina state Rep. Bakari Sellers “has again introduced a bill under which seventh-grade students could get a free vaccine to prevent” HPV. Sellers, a Democrat, “appeared Monday to speak in favor of the bill along with former first lady Jenny Sanford and doctors from the Medical University of South Carolina at the Charleston medical school on Monday.” The AP notes that an “identical bill passed both houses of the General Assembly but was vetoed last year by Gov. Nikki Haley,” who called it an “unfunded mandate” and the issue should be discussed by families and their doctors “without involving the government.”
