Posted by & filed under Featured, Member News, Newsroom.

Prevention Starts Early

HPV (Human Papillomavirus) is a serious health threat. “High-risk” types of HPV cause cervical cancer. In addition, HPV can contribute to other types of cancer in both men and women. How common is HPV? 4 out of 5 people have the infection.


When vaccinated early with the HPV vaccine—between the age of 11 and 12—your preteen child is protected against infection from certain types of very high-risk HPV.

1 + 2 + 3 = IMMUNITY

The complete HPV vaccine is 3 shots given over 6 months. ALL shots must be received in order for the vaccine to be effective!
