    Getting your child the HPV Vaccine now, helps prevent several cancers later.

    What if you could protect your child from getting cancer in the future? You can. The HPV (Human Papillomavirus) Vaccine can prevent cervical cancer and many other cancers in women AND men. It's most effective if given at the age of 11 or 12, but can be given through age 26. Most men and women will contract HPV in their lifetime. You can make sure your child is not one of them.
