Researchers at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center found that six months after the vaccination, which helps prevent the Human Papillomavirus, a majority of teen girls still thought it was important to practice safe sex.

Some parents have raised concerns that the vaccine could lead to risky behavior in teens.

The more common brand of the vaccine, Gardasil, was developed in Rochester back in 2006
