WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA9) -- Fewer parents are having their teen girls vaccinated to protect against human papilloma virus, or HPV.

A new report from the Mayo Clinic finds 44 percent of parents say they're concerned about potential side effects from the vaccine and 1 in 5 believe the shots aren't necessary. 

Dr. Sandra Takai, M.D. from Shady Grove Adventist Hospital talks to Anita Brikman about this disturbing trend.
