#HowIRecommend HPV Vaccination Video Series

When it comes to immunizations, parents trust your expertise more than anyone else. The #HowIRecommend video series highlights clinicians like you, who explain how they are achieving high HPV vaccination rates and effectively addressing HPV vaccination questions in their practices. These short, informative videos cover a range of topics related to HPV vaccination, including:

  • Making effective recommendations to increase vaccination rates
  • Helping parents understand why HPV vaccine is important for their child
  • Addressing parents’ questions about HPV vaccine safety
  • Involving everyone in your practice in HPV vaccination efforts

Featured Videos

If you treat adolescents, conversations about HPV vaccine are part of your daily routine. Whether you are a clinician in a large medical group or health system, or a smaller practice or clinic, #HowIRecommend videos offer simple and practical guidance for you to have successful conversations with parents about HPV vaccination.

Finding a Video That’s Right for You

The #HowIRecommend video series is organized two ways: by the question asked and by each clinician’s full set of videos. Just like you, each clinician is unique in their conversational style and approach to answering parents’ questions or concerns about HPV vaccine, with a common goal to protect their patients from cancers caused by HPV. You also can view all #HowIRecommend videos, with the most recently posted offered first, on YouTube.
