Parents may have little knowledge about pertussis, meningococcal disease, or HPV, so there are many steps you can take to ensure your patients are fully vaccinated. Recommend to parents of adolescents ages 11 to 18 years old that they vaccinate their teens. Studies show parents trust your opinion more than others and YOUR recommendation is the strongest predictor of vaccination. Ask about vaccination status when they come in for visits or physicals.

AAP-CA3 is excited to launch our HPV Vaccine Provider Education and Promotion video. This video provides up-to-date information about the burden of HPV-related disease, the rationale behind vaccinating pre-teens prior to sexual debut, the clear need for boys as well as girls to receive HPV vaccination, and vaccine safety information. The video features 8 case vignettes in which doctors demonstrate effective counseling strategies, incorporating the latest available evidence, to address the concerns of vaccine-hesitant parents. Thank you to Drs. Maya Kumar, Eyla Boies, Mark Sawyer and our AAP-CA3 HPV Sub-Committee members!
