pharma boon.

Texas now requires all schoolgirls entering sixth grade to be vaccinated against cervical cancer.

You know what I think? I think Governor Perry and the Texas legislature got their poles greased by Merck pretty comprehensively.

Anyone know how many girls cycle through 6th grade in Texas every year? That's probably a few hundred thousand doses of the new vaccine annually. No wonder Merck is bankrolling efforts to make the same vaccinations mandatory in a lot of other states.
