Join Us for California HPV Vaccine Week August 1-7, 2021!

INTRODUCTION

The back-to-school season is a natural time for families to catch up on their immunizations, and this summer is an important time to get adolescent immunizations back on track! HPV vaccinations and other adolescent immunizations have declined sharply due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  In addition, there are expected increases in cancer incidence and mortality as well as a decrease in cancer screenings as a result of the pandemic.  Ensuring children are vaccinated is one way to ensure cancer prevention stays on track!

If the COVID-19 vaccine is approved for ages12+ this summer, current recommendations include: No other vaccine 14 days before, no vaccines 3-4 weeks in between a two-dose vaccine, and no vaccines 14 days after.  This means there’s a possibility of an 8 week blackout for recommended vaccines during the usual back-to-school vaccination season.

It is crucial that we catch up on adolescent vaccination earlier than usual in 2021 to ensure a safe return to in-person schooling!

ABOUT CALIFORNIA HPV VACCINE WEEK

California HPV Vaccine week is an annual observance held the first full week of August.  The goal of this campaign is to increase awareness of the HPV vaccine and promote the vaccination of adolescents ages 9-13.  California HPV Vaccine Week is a great way for families, providers, coalitions supporting children’s health, and local health departments to get out the message about the importance of the HPV vaccine as cancer prevention.
