Vaccination for HPV

After a recent presentation in League City, TX, an attendee asked if I work with Merck. I denied any association with the pharmaceutical and asked why. She said, ‘The way you talked about the importance of getting the HPV vaccine.’ She continued to tell me about another speaker she heard who believes the vaccine is harmful.

In my presentation, I mentioned the program in Australia where all girls and boys have been getting the vaccine for years, and there has been a noticeable decline in cervical abnormalities and genital warts. Here is a confirmation about the positive effects of the vaccine in England: https://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/cancercausing-hpv-almost-eliminated-from-young-women-in-england-thanks-to-vaccine-program/

What should I have said to her?
I’m not a healthcare provider and I will look into it further. How was that for avoiding conflict?
