Calgary government clinics to offer vaccine for Catholic schoolgirls
September 30, 2008
Government health officials in the Canadian province of Calgary have announced that they will probably provide the controversial HPV vaccine on demand for girls enrolled in parochial schools. Catholic-school administrators have drawn criticism for saying that the shots would not be administered on school grounds. (It is inaccurate, however, to say that the schools "banned" the vaccinations; girls are free to receive the shots elsewhere.)
