Abstract

Perceptions of parents willing to enroll their daughters in genital herpes vaccine trials were examined by questionnaire. Respondents were knowledgeable about genital herpes and endorsed personal and societal protection as important reasons to vaccinate. A belief among some that the vaccine might promote sexual activity did not prevent them from seeking protection for their daughters.
