Utah Cancer Control Program Recommendation
Recommend HPV vaccination in the same way and on the same day as all adolescent vaccines. You can say, “Now that your son or daughter is 11, they are due for vaccinations today to help protect them from meningitis, HPV cancers, and pertussis.” Remind parents of the follow-up shots their child will need and ask them to make appointments before they leave.
