CDC: HPV vaccine effective but grossly underutilized
from Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
A recent report from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention titled, "HPV vaccine: Safe, effective, and grossly underutilized" claims that not enough parents are making the decision to have their children vaccinated against the disease. "There is no doubt in my mind that the vaccine is underutilized," said Jonathan Pletcher, clinical director for the division of adolescent medicine at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, "I think there's generally a lack of understanding about HPV."
