Join Us for an Important FREE HPV Discussion
Did you know that approximately 80 percent of people will get an HPV infection during their lifetime? Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). The disease is passed through sexual contact, even when an infected person has no symptoms. While usually harmless, HPV can sometimes turn into genital warts or cancer.
To prevent this disease, physicians may encourage parents with children ages 11 to 12 to research and understand the benefits of the HPV vaccine. It is recommended that the vaccine is given to teenage children in two doses, earlier rather than later. Children who are 15 years and older may receive the vaccine in three doses.
Learn more about HPV and your child. Susan Kressly, MD, will lead a critical virtual discussion on the HPV vaccine and how to protect children long before they are ever exposed to the disease. The online event is FREE to attend, but you must register.
