HPV Vaccination is Cancer Prevention


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is estimated to cause nearly 35,000 cases of cancer in men and women every year in the U.S.  HPV vaccination can stop more than 32,000 of these cancers from ever developing by preventing the infections that cause those cancers.

The CDC recommends that all children ages 11–12-years should get the HPV vaccine series to protect them against cancers caused by HPV infections.
