IPN: Adolescent Vaccines: How Pharmacists can make Strong Recommendations and Referrals

Every year in the United States, 33,700 women and men are diagnosed with a cancer caused by HPV infection. HPV vaccination could prevent more than 90% of these cancers from ever developing. Yet HPV vaccine rates continue to lag behind other vaccines—only half of U.S. adolescents are up to date. Pharmacists are uniquely positioned to have a positive impact on HPV vaccine delivery, given that on average, a pharmacy is available within two miles of every home in the United States. Pharmacists can identify which vaccines preteens need and motivate parents to make an appointment with their child’s doctor to get vaccinated. In some states, pharmacists can administer HPV vaccine to preteens.

During this webinar, a pharmacist will describe how pharmacists can make effective HPV vaccine recommendations and referrals. A CDC expert will describe effective communication techniques and CDC educational resources for healthcare providers and parents. The speakers will also answer your questions during the Q&A portion of this event.
