Gardisil Update: Told Ya So

Chock up another one for our prescience. Some 3 1/2 years ago, we discussed the possibility that young boys would also be given this tried-but-untrue panacea. Now comes word that "the American Academy of Pediatrics is fully recommending that boys get the shots as well."

And why is that?

Well, follow the money:

"The new policy should end any resistance among health insurers to covering HPV vaccines for boys"

At $130 a pop, no less.

Exit question: How long 'til HHS Secretary Shecantbeserious mandates that this be covered at 100%, as well? Sauce for the gander, and all that.
