US Cancer Centers Again Support HPV Vaccination

In January 2017 all 69 US National Cancer Institute NCI-designated Cancer Centers Endorsed HPV Vaccination.

 

As national leaders in cancer research and clinical care, we are compelled to collectively call upon parents and health care providers to increase vaccination rates so our nation’s children don’t grow up to become cancer patients.

HPV vaccines, like all vaccines (used in the U.S.), have passed extensive safety testing before and after being approved.

The vaccines  have a safety profile similar to that of other vaccines approved for adolescents in the U.S.

Internationally, the safety of HPV vaccines has been tested and approved by the World Health Organization’s Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety”.
