CDC now recommends 11 to 12 year olds get two doses of HPV vaccine—rather than the previously recommended three doses—to protect against cancers caused by HPV. The second dose should be given 6-12 months after the first dose. For more information on the updated recommendations, read the MMWR: https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/65/wr/mm6549a5.htm.
Providing educational resources to parents will help them understand the importance of vaccinating their children and answer many of their questions about vaccination. Here are some simple suggestions on how you can use the resources below.
Take Action By:
- Placing Spanish language posters, schedules, and factsheets in your practice. Or consider playing PSAs in your office waiting rooms.
- Making sure that every parent gets one of the following factsheets about HPV vaccine. The easy-to-read factsheets have information in English on the front and in Spanish on the back.
