I'm past the age range for the vaccine, so it's not a consideration for me.

I know a young woman that got it a few months ago.  She said the shot was painful.  I don't remember if her insurance covered it. 

Another cervical cancer vaccine is due on the market shortly, so Merck has been trying to get market share before the competing vaccine is available. 

I remember a story on NPR some years ago about cervical cancer, it's very manageable with early detection.  And IIRC, there are a lot more poor women that get it because of lack of access to routine pap smears.
