  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 14 million people, including teens, become infected with Human Papillomavirus (HPV) each year, posing a significant public health risk. HPV is a common virus that can cause several types of cancers affecting men and women, including cervical, penile, anal, and throat cancers. 


    A preventive measure exists to protect against these HPV-related cancers. The HPV vaccine is recommended for preteen boys and girls at age 11 or 12 because it provides protection BEFORE EXPOSURE to the virus and produces a more robust immune response during the preteen years.
