(WXYZ) - Parents, did you know pediatricians are recommending that your sons be vaccinated against the Human Papilloma Virus, better known as HPV?

Doctors say boys and girls should receive the vaccine when they are eleven or twelve.
Parents, what do you think of this new recommendation? Will you vaccinate your son? Sound off in the comments section below.
