Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the United States. HPV vaccines can prevent some of the health effects HPV causes. This webinar is to provide more information to raise awareness around HPV.
HPV vaccinations prevent 6 types of cancers. With well-child visits down, and California tweens and teens at risk for vaccine-preventable disease, now is the time to catch up on all routine vaccinations, including HPV. Join us to learn about the essential vaccines your adolescent needs, and what vaccines will be available at the Backpack Giveaway Event on Aug 13th.
Zoom link will be provided after RSVP. Please also submit questions to Assemblymember.AWeber@assembly.ca.gov in advance of the webinar that you would like to be covered by July 21. Please use "HPV Webinar" in the subject. If you do not have an address in the district, please also email us for the zoom information.
