Do vaccines lead to increased sexual behaviour in young people?

Concerns related to vaccination for the HPV viruses have been expressed and published in academic journals and other media. The main concern is that vaccination for HPV viruses will create a false sense of safety among young people, which will lead to an increase of unprotected sex.

Studies however both by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in the USA and by academic communities demonstrate that there is no evidence to support such concerns.
