Provided in this presentation is up-to-date information on HPV infection, HPV-related disease and HPV cancers. HPV vaccine information and recommendations are also reviewed. The presentation also provides evidence-based suggestions for successful HPV vaccine communication, as well as the current HPV vaccine communication resources available from CDC.

Dr. Anne Schuchat and Jill Roark will discuss “the perfect storm” of issues surrounding the HPV vaccine that have led to its underutilization. Communications research with parents and providers will shed light on the opportunities to improve uptake. Practical tips for strongly recommending the vaccine will be discussed, along with resources to help parents accept the recommendation for same-day vaccination.
