ACIP recommends all 11-12 year-old males get vaccinated against HPV

Recommendations subject to approval by CDC

WHAT

CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) approved today recommendations for routine vaccination of males 11 or 12 years old with 3-doses of HPV4 to protect against Human Papalloma Virus. The HPV vaccine will afford protection against certain HPV-related conditions and cancers in males, and vaccination of males with HPV may also provide indirect protection of women by reducing transmission of HPV.
