Understanding HPV Coverage

The latest HPV vaccination coverage estimates in the 2016 National Immunization Survey-Teen show that most parents are choosing to get the HPV vaccine for their child. In 2016, 60 percent of teens aged 13-17 years received one or more doses of HPV vaccine, an increase of 4 percentage points from 2015.

Although most children are getting their first dose of HPV vaccine, many children are not completing the vaccination series. Only 43 percent of teens are up to date on all the recommended doses of HPV vaccine. Recent changes to HPV vaccine recommendations mean preventing HPV cancers is easier now than ever before: CDC recommends 11 to 12 year olds get just two doses of HPV vaccine to prevent HPV cancers. CDC urges providers to recommend HPV vaccination for all their 11- and 12-year-old patients on the same day and in the same way they recommend other preteen vaccines.
