Children’s Community Pediatrics (CCP) strives to protect your children against the threat of disease at any stage of their lives. That’s why we promote HPV vaccination for all of our young adolescent patients.
The HPV vaccination is a cancer prevention drug – for the disease is identified in 99% of cervical cancer cases and in many male-specific cancers as well. By scheduling your son or daughter’s HPV vaccination series, you are helping to protect him or her from cancer later on in life.
Depending on your child’s age, the CDC makes different recommendations. If your child is between the age of 11 and 12, he or she will receive a two-dose series. If your child is over age 15, it will be a three-shot series. Below you will find some frequently asked questions about the HPV vaccine. For more information, talk with your child’s pediatrician.
HPV is identified in 99 percent of cervical cancer cases. The HPV-9 vaccine covers strains of HPV that are responsible for 90% of cervical cancer cases. (75% are HPV types 16 and 18. 15% are HPV types 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58.)
HPV has long been suspected of playing a role in cancers of the mouth and throat. New studies are now firmly establishing the role that this virus plays in the development of these cancers.7
