Description: Although HPV vaccination rates are rising, there are still too many  unvaccinated boys and girls left vulnerable to devastating HPV cancers later in life. Vaccination could prevent most of these cancers. CDC needs health care professionals to make effective HPV vaccine recommendations at 11 and 12 years old. In this presentation, you’ll learn how clinicians can and have been successful making HPV vaccine recommendations.  In addition, they discuss how they effectively answer parents’ questions and communicate HPV vaccination information to parents and patients.  These clinicians are successfully talking about HPV vaccine, and thus, reducing missed opportunities to protect patients against HPV.

Audience: Immunization Providers (Physicians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, Physician’s Assistants, DoD Paraprofessionals, Medical Students, etc.)
