There is another push at the Illinois Capitol to add the HPV vaccine to the list of shots that kids need to start junior high. Democratic state Rep. Robyn Gabel wants to require the vaccine for kids starting the sixth grade. Currently Illinois requires that schools give kids and parents in the sixth grade information about the vaccine. A similar vaccine requirement failed to pass last year.
