HPV vaccine

Jul 24, 2014 — Eight years after the FDA approved the first vaccine against HPV, only 57 percent of female teens and 35 percent of male teens have been inoculated, the CDC says. Are doctors partly to blame?

Jul 8, 2014 — Earlier safety studies of the vaccine for human papillomavirus found a higher risk of dangerous blood clots. But a study of 500,000 women and girls finds that the vaccine doesn't raise risk.

Feb 19, 2014 — Only one third of teenage girls have gotten the recommended three shots of HPV vaccine to protect against cervical cancer. Doctors are trying to figure out what will get them in the door.

Feb 11, 2014 — The vaccine against human papillomavirus is recommended for girls and young women to prevent cervical cancer. A study finds it also protects against genital warts, a common sexually transmitted disease, even if people get less than the recommended three shots.

Feb 3, 2014 — The HPV vaccine is recommended for girls and boys when they are 11 or 12. The idea is to get preteens vaccinated so that if they do become sexually active as teens, they will be protected against a virus that can cause cervical cancer.

Jul 19, 2013 — One study finds that women who have been vaccinated against HPV are much less likely to have throat infections with the virus. Since the vaccine helps reduce risk of some cancers, scientists think it might turn out to be effective against throat cancers, too.

Jun 19, 2013 — A vaccine against a virus that causes cervical cancer has cut infections among teenage girls by over half in the first four years of use, scientists report. Only about one-third of girls in that age group have received the recommended shots.

May 9, 2013 — The two makers of HPV vaccines have agreed to lower the prices for their vaccines to less than $5 a shot for low-income countries. The cheaper vaccine may make it easier to vaccinate girls in places where the risk of death from cervical cancer is greatest.
Comments |
Mar 18, 2013 — Parents frequently fret about risks to their daughters from vaccination against cervical cancer, even though the vaccines are safe. Parents who don't plan to have their daughter get the shots often say they don't know enough about the vaccine or that their child doesn't need it anyway.
Comments |
Oct 15, 2012 — Researchers found that 11- and 12-year-old girls who had the vaccine were no more likely to have had sexual health issues than ones who didn't. Still, parents' concerns about daughters and sexual activity remain a barrier to widespread adoption of the HPV vaccine, along with concerns about vaccine safety.
