Decided against it for both our DDs, for various reasons - not least the sense that our daughters were being used at the time as guinea pigs for some massive experiment! Not to mention the feeling that the vaccination scheme was railroaded through far too quickly, without proper research having being done into the benefits. There are reports of some girls having suffered serious side effects, yet these are covered up. It also seems impossible to find out how long any protection provided by the vaccine is expected to last. In contrast, the new meningitis vaccine - which could help protect against the only strain of this devastating disease not yet covered by existing vaccines - is considered to be not "cost-effective".
I remain open-minded though, and really would like to know if there has recently been any further independent research or findings (i.e. not pushed by big pharma or the government propaganda machine) to prove that the HPV vaccine programme is indeed effective and worth the risk of side effects. Especially from medical professionals or any parents who shared similar concerns but decided in favour of the vaccines and are satisfied that they made the right decision.
