Summary:

In the U.S more people are infected with human papillomavirus (HPV) than any other sexually transmitted infection, with about 79 million Americans infected and 14 million newly infected annually. Most sexually active people will become infected during their lifetimes. Vaccinations at an early age, before sexual debut, offer protection from common low- and high-risk types of HPV. This module provides nurses and other members of the healthcare team with information about HPV vaccines to prevent cervical and other cancers, as well as HPV-related diseases.

Vaccine controversy is an unfortunate byproduct of today's social media, television, celebrity worship, and refusal to read science. Thank you for this important and much-needed course amidst an environment poisoned by non-clinical spokespersons.
