Kansas ranks low among states for HPV and meningitis vaccinations
Just 21 percent of Kansas females age 13-17 completed the full course of HPV vaccinations in 2013. HPV, or human papillomavirus, is common and causes almost all cases of cervical cancer, and can cause other cancers in both men and women. A series of three vaccinations, usually administered to preteen boys and girls, can prevent the virus and the cancer it causes.
