Abstract
A private doctor's practice has the power to make a lasting impact on human papillomavirus vaccination and help reduce the HPV cancer burden in your community. The HPV vaccine is a powerful tool to prevent multiple cancers, yet vaccination rates lag behind those of other preteen vaccines. HPV causes about 31,500 cases of cancer in men and women each year in the U.S. Every member of the practice should understand and advocate for HPV vaccination as cancer prevention and should work together to reduce missed opportunities for vaccination.
