HPV is a serious disease...Make sure your child is protected!

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the U.S. HPV can lead to cervical cancer in women, as well as other oral and genital (sex organ) cancers in men and women. HPV also causes genital warts.

A person can get the HPV virus during sexual contact without knowing it.

Yes. HPV is the main cause of cervical cancer. In the U.S., about 12,000 women get cervical cancer every year, and about 4,000 die from it. It can also lead to cancers of the vagina, vulva, penis, anus, throat, and mouth.

If and when your child ever begins sexual activity, then they are at risk. At least half of sexually active people get infected with HPV at some point in their lives.

Vaccination is the best way to protect your child from HPV infection. The vaccine is most effective if given before a person becomes sexually active. However, even if sexual activity has begun, a person can still be protected by the vaccine and should be vaccinated.
Both girls and boys should get 3 doses of HPV vaccine, starting at around 11-12 years of age. Older teens and young adults should also start or complete their HPV vaccine series.
