Join Us for California HPV Vaccine Week August 5-10, 2019!

The back-to-school season is a natural time for families to catch up on their immunizations. That’s why August is a great time for organizations to raise awareness among parents and the public about HPV vaccination as cancer prevention.


Our call to action is simple: During the week of August 5-10, utilize this suggested content to communicate with your constituents about the importance of HPV vaccination.


We’ve provided suggested content developed by partner organizations and CA HPV Vaccination Roundtable members that include social media posts, sharable images, and copy that can be used on websites, newsletters, and blogs. Whether you do a little or a lot, please help us track efforts by using #CaliforniaHPVfree and #caHPVvaxweek on social media. We would love to hear from you! Email us about your organization’s activities at info@cahpvroundtable.org.


We appreciate your support of California HPV Vaccine Week. Together, we will protect California families from  HPV cancers!
