CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- A state lawmaker is proposing that state health officials offer the HPV vaccine and educational material to seventh graders in South Carolina.

Democratic State Rep. Bakari Sellers of Bamberg plans a news conference Monday at the Hollings Cancer Center at the Medical University of South Carolina to discuss his proposed legislation.

The HPV, or human papilloma virus, is a relatively common virus but some types can cause cervical cancer.
