Did you know that in 2013, 85 percent of Texas girls who were unvaccinated against human papillomavirus (HPV) had a missed opportunity for HPV vaccination? And 93 percent of Texas girls could have started the HPV vaccine series if missed opportunities were eliminated. You'll find this and other insightful Texas-specific data in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) quarterly HPV vaccination reports.
CDC hopes that highlighting Texas-specific data will help immunization stakeholders and physicians develop strategies that increase HPV vaccination rates. The first quarter report focuses on key recommendations for preventing missed HPV vaccination opportunities in Texas. The second quarter report focuses on the importance of the clinician recommendation for HPV vaccination.
