HPV Vaccine Resources
- HPV is so common that almost everyone will be infected with HPV at some point in their lives, however, most people will never know they have been infected.
- Nearly 80 million people, that is about 1 in 4 people, are currently infected (in the USA) with HPV.
- HPV exposure can occur with any type of intimate sexual contact.
- In the U.S.A. HPV causes about 17,000 cancers in women and and about 9,000 cancers in men each year.
- There is a vaccine that can help protect us from the HPV cancer-causing virus.
Low HPV vaccination rates are leaving another generation of boys and girls vulnerable to devastating HPV cancers. Vaccination could prevent most of these cancers. We are looking to you to make a strong recommendation for HPV vaccination when kids are 11 and 12 years old.
Please join TAPI and ADHS in our HPV Vaccine campaign – Protect Me With Three.
This campaign not only focuses on HPV vaccination, but the need to vaccinate our teens with the 3 vaccines that are so important to their health. It reminds parents, teens and providers alike that teens need: HPV, Tdap and Meningococcal vaccines.
Below you will find resources available for download and TAPI also has these items available free to order. For additional resources you can click here to be directed to the CDC HPV resources on their website.
