HPV Vaccine Toolkit
Important Note: Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) changed the recommendations for the HPV vaccine from 3 doses to 2 doses for younger adolescents (ages 9 through 14). IKC, as well as many other organizations, are in the process of updating our information to reflect those changes.
The general information on the vaccine posted here is still reliable, but some resources may not yet reflect the vaccination schedule update. Thank you for your patience.
