Moving forward: HPV vaccination is only the beginning
The HPV vaccine is the first vaccine truly indicated for our adolescent patients. The HPV vaccine is not only important in its own right; it is also a bellwether for vaccines of the future. If clinicians made a list of vaccines that we wish we had, what would be on the list? I think we’d all agree that we want a vaccine for HIV. We’ve been working for decades on a vaccine against herpes. We’d love to have vaccines to prevent gonorrhea, chlamydia, hepatitis C, cytomegalovirus, group B streptococcus, breast cancer and prostate cancer.
