Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine has been recently introduced in the healthcare systems throughout the world. HPV immunization has so far not been included into the mandatory vaccination programme in Croatia, but the manufacturers and their lobbyists put great pressure on the medical profession and authorities. HPV and the vaccine are the frequent topic of the professional medical education, and are often present in the public domain. The spectrum of the marketing techniques is used in their promotion, and disinformation and manipulation abound. One of the most common claims or insinuations is that the vaccine prevents, i.e. protects from the cancer of the uterine cervix.
Unbiased analysis of the scientific findings indicates that the HPV vaccine is useless, inefficient and infrequently harmful. Medical professionals and health authorities should lean on the methodologically valid and independent research and despite the external political pressure, designate this procedure as useless and remove it from the medical practice.
