Sixteen-year-old Zophia Raleigh writes in her journal in her bedroom in Circle Pines, Minn., on Feb. 7, 2014. Her father says there's no need for Zophia, and her sister Izabella to get the HPV vaccine because they are not sexually active. "I'm not ruling it out in the future," says Raleigh, "but for right now, our lifestyle choices have made it irrelevant."
