Confronting Barriers to HPV Vaccination
Presented by the Southeast Pennsylvania Area Health Education Center and the National AHEC Organization. Low HPV vaccination rates are leaving another generation of boys and girls vulnerable to devastating HPV cancers. Vaccination could prevent most of these cancers. CDC is looking to you to make an effective recommendation for HPV vaccination when kids are 11 and 12 years old. Provided in this presentation is up-to-date information on HPV infection/disease, HPV vaccine, and ways to successfully communicate with patients and their parents about HPV vaccination. Find out how to reduce missed opportunities by recommending HPV vaccine the same way and same day you recommend other routinely recommended adolescent vaccines.
