Dear Vaccineers,

Pop test:

Uh oh.

There are a lot of reasons for our less than stellar uptake of HPV vaccinations, not least of which has to do with the fact that current regimens call for a 2-3 two-shot series and a lot of people are WAY better at making New Year's resolutions than they are at keeping them.

Good question! IS one dose good enough? This is a burning question for every HPV-minded parent except the ones who wake up every morning thinking "I sure wish I had MORE errands to run!"

Note: Those parents are unicorns and should be treated gently. Preferably by feeding them a steady diet of YOUR errands to run.

Come to the 2023-2024 VDC season ender and learn more about future tense thinking around HPV vaccines and vaccination schedules!

Hope to see you soon!
