Age of immunity

So, my solution to the whole "potentially explosive issue" of when to vaccinate for HPV is to pick a ridiculously young age. If they pick, say, age 12, people will say "what, our kids are having sex at 12?." Contrawise, if they pick say, age 5, there is no controversy, it is just getting in an immunization like measles, mumps, rubella (what's rubella?) etc. Boom. Problem solved, thank you!

But seriously .. "about a quarter of boys and girls have had sex by age 15, according to government surveys"??? I knew the popular kids were having all the fun.
