CDC Provides Funding to Increase HPV Vaccination

Every year, more than 30,000 human papillomavirus (HPV)-related cancers 
are diagnosed. Many 
of these could have been prevented by HPV vaccination. The HPV vaccine is 
recommended for boys and girls at age 11 or 12.
To increase awareness that the HPV vaccine is cancer prevention, CDC has 
funded the American Cancer Society to work with partners to promote 
activities that improve HPV vaccination delivery.
The National HPV Vaccination Roundtable will bring together immunization a
nd cancer prevention stakeholders to provide education, outreach, and training 
to the public and to health care providers. Through engagement and 
coordination with experts in immunization and cancer, the Roundtable 
will help promote and implement HPV vaccination, preventing future cancers.

HPV vaccination can prevent an estimated 28,500 new cancers per year. That's more than the average attendance at one of the largest pop concert tours of last year. La vacuna contra el VPH puede prevenir una cifra estimada de 28 500 nuevos cánceres por año. Eso es más que el promedio de personas que asistieron a una de las giras de conciertos de música pop más grandes del año pasado.
