HPV vaccine is cancer prevention.
HPV vaccine protects against HPV types that most commonly cause anal, cervical, oropharyngeal, penile, vaginal, and vulvar cancers.
Every year in the U.S., 27,000 people get cancer caused by HPV.
That’s 1 person every 20 minutes of every day, all year long.
Most of these cancers can be prevented by HPV vaccine.
