Prevent Cervical Cancer

Protect your daughter against cervical cancer by making sure she receives all three shots of the HPV vaccine.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends this vaccination series for all girls 11 years of age and older. The series of shots are administered over a six-month time frame. It is important that all three shots are given to ensure protection against HPV, the virus that causes cervical cancer.

About 20 million people – mostly teenagers and people in their early twenties – are infected with HPV, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Consult your family physician for more information about vaccinations.
