Re "How to save teenagers from misery and death" (Editorial, Aug. 10): The CDC recommends HPV vaccination for preteen girls and boys at age 11 or 12 years.

Yes, Sacramento County should have vaccination programs in every school. Parents who do not want their children to be vaccinated could sign a release saying "I do not wish my child to receive the HPV vaccine. I wish my child to be at increased risk for getting or spreading cervical cancer."

Thank you for trying to increase the rate of HPV vaccination. Will the schools keep records on how many students received the vaccination and how many did not? It would be nice Mayor Kevin Johnson and the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors had a goal of vaccinating all Sacramento County students ages 11 to 12.
