Cervical cancer vaccine to be introduced to young girls in the Republic of Ireland. sign now

In August 2008, Health Minister Mary Harney announced that a cervical cancer vaccine would be given to all girls between the ages of 10 and 12.

On 4/11/2008 (the same day as the US Presidential election), Ms. Harney announced that this vaccine would be scrapped due to budget cutbacks.

By signing this petition, you are declaring that you wish for the HSE and Minister Harney to re-introduce the cervical cancer screening to young girls in Ireland.

In Ireland, approximately 180 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and 73 women die from cervical cancer each year.

If re-introduced, the vaccine is said to be 100\% effective within two years.

    If your looking to make a cut back,how about you increase your 10\% pay cut to 50\% and you'd still be on over 100,000 a year,yet you can't find 10million for this vaccine?Ridiculous.
