HPV Immunization Education

You Are The Key To Cancer Prevention

The human papillomavirus (HPV) is associated with six types of cancers affecting men and women. The HPV vaccine prevents against 90% of these cancers. Thanks to funding from the National AHEC Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, SE PA AHEC works to increase awareness, as well as train health professionals about the HPV vaccine, in an overall effort to decrease HPV-associated cancers by increasing HPV vaccination rates in Delaware, New Jersey, and Southeastern Pennsylvania.

After training, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the burden of HPV disease.

  • Define the importance of HPV vaccination for cancer prevention.

  • Explain the rationale for vaccinating youth at ages 11 or 12.

  • List the recommendations for administering the HPV vaccine to girls and to boys.

  • Provide useful and compelling information about the HPV vaccine to parents to aid in making the decision to vaccinate.

  • Locate resources relevant to current immunization practice.
