HPV, better known as “Human Papillomavirus” is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections. HPV can be passed even when the person shows no signs or symptoms. There are several different types HPV and here at Citizens for Citizens Family Planning, we offer a vaccine that helps to prevent cervical cancer among women.
The vaccination protects up to 9 different strains of the virus. The vaccine if both safe and effective and is recommended to protect against cancers caused by HPV. The procedure is a total of 3 shots. The shot is not only for women! We encourage boys and girls to get vaccinated sooner rather than later.
Your healthcare provider at Citizens for Citizens Family Planning will be able to answer any questions or concerns about the vaccination to ensure you understand the benefits of the shot and health risks associated with HPV. Our goal is to provide you with the highest level of expertise and make sure you feel comfortable and safe with your health decisions.
