UVA Cancer Center, Other Top U.S. Cancer Centers Urge Cancer-Preventing HPV Vaccinations

UVA Cancer Center is joining 70 other National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer centers and partner organizations in urging physicians, parents and young adults to get cancer-preventing human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccinations back on track.

Dramatic drops in annual checkups and immunizations during the COVID-19 pandemic have caused a significant decline in vital preventive services among U.S. children and adolescents – especially for the HPV vaccine.
