SouthCoast Health nurse practitioner on the importance of the HPV vaccine

Every year in the United States, 33,700 women and men are diagnosed with cancer caused by HPV infection. The good news? The HPV vaccination can help prevent these diseases with a success rate as high as 90% in some cases.

“The age recommended for children to get their HPV vaccine has been getting younger and younger,” said SouthCoast Health Nurse Practitioner Carisa Elmore (pictured) “With its incredible success rate of preventing such awful diseases, it’s really a must for any child.”
