Speaking about HPV Vaccine to your Colleagues
Be an HPV vaccine champion! Talk to your colleagues in pediatrics and family medicine about the importance of recommending HPV vaccine to 11- or 12-year-olds in the same way and on the same day as Tdap and meningococcal conjugate vaccines.
Take Action By:
- Reviewing CDC’s side deck to fully recognize the burden of HPV disease, the significance of a strong recommendation, and how to successfully communicate about HPV vaccine to parents.
- When asked your opinion on HPV vaccine, explaining the importance of HPV vaccination as a primary prevention tool for HPV cancers.
- Integrate learnings from CDC’s free continuing education activity into your presentations with colleagues and staff as well as the conversations you have as you recommend HPV vaccine to your 11-12 year old patients and their parents.
