ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -- A new Mayo Clinic study shows a rising percentage of parents say they won't have their teen daughters vaccinated against the human papillomavirus or HPV.
Mayo researchers found more than 2 in 5 parents surveyed believe the vaccine for HPV is unnecessary even though an increasing number of physicians are recommending it.
The findings published in the Journal of Pediatrics also show parents worry about potential side effects.
