Did you know that the HPV Vaccine prevents several strains of HPV, a virus which is believed to cause genital warts and cervical cancer? A full 20 million Americans are infected with one of 100 strains of HPV. Many medical organizations recommend delivering this vaccine to girls between 9 and 14 years old. This is a personal decision that parents need to make for their daughters. We at OBGYN Bradenton are available to have a consultation about the risks and benefits of this vaccine. We can also administer the vaccine if it’s something you decide to do.
