Happy High School Girls

HPV Resource Center


Research shows and the infectious disease community agrees that healthcare professionals working with preteens, teens, and young adults must:

  • Make a strong recommendation for HPV vaccination
  • Clearly indicate that HPV vaccine is cancer prevention
The HPV Resource Center provides information, tools, and resources for healthcare professionals and epidemiologists to help increase HPV vaccination rates for males and females at the recommended ages for vaccination.

Males and Females: 11-12 Years
For those who did not receive the vaccine when they were younger in accordance with the recommended schedule, females can receive it through age 26 and males through age 21.
