HPV vaccine no longer just for women

(KLTV) - It looks like the human papiloma-virus vaccine is not just for women.

Doctors are now saying men should get the HPV vaccine, too.

HPV is the sexually transmitted disease that can lead to cervical cancer in women.

It's recommended for women who are under 26-years-old.

But, researchers now say it can also help prevent certain cancers in men, and that boys should also be vaccinated.
