"The film looks behind the fear, hype and politics that polarize people into emotionally charged pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine camps with no room for middle ground. Verite stories of individuals and their families, whose lives have been forever changed by vaccine choices, interwoven with interviews from leading experts in the field, will re-frame the vaccine debate and offer, for the first time, the opportunity to have a rational, scientific and factual discussion on how to create a more effective vaccine program in America today"--IMDb. The film re-frames the emotionally charged issue and offers, for the first time, the opportunity for a rational and scientific discussion on how to create a safer and more effective vaccine program.

Interestingly, since this movie came out, a top researcher involved in the study of this vaccine has come forward and pointed out that there is no public health benefit to this vaccine in the US. Prevention of cervical cancer, is nearly 100% possible with regular pap smears, yet due to promotion of this vaccine, many young women believe they since they got the HPV vaccine, they are protected from cervical cancer and no longer need to get pap smears.
.
In fact, the vaccine only protects against a small number of HPV strains, and the protection even for those is far less than 100%. Furthermore, since introduction of the vaccine, there has been a measurable shift in the most prevalent strains. (Kind of like how antibiotic use, causes a shift towards antibiotic resistance in the most prevalent microbes).

But what makes all this even worse, is that many young women have had their health devastated by the HPV vaccine. It appears to have one of the worst safety records all of currently recommended vaccines -- as you will see in this movie.
