Don’t Wait to Vaccinate cancer.org/hpv Highland Medical Center DID YOU KNOW… The American Cancer Society recommends that boys and girls get vaccinated against HPV between the ages of 9 and 12 to help prevent six types of cancer later in life. Age Matters When you vaccinate your child on time, you help protect them from HPV cancers. HPV vaccination works best when given before age 13. Vaccination at the recommended ages will prevent more cancers than vaccination at older ages. Cancer Prevention Decreases as Age at Vaccination Increases On Time Ages 9-12 2 Doses 6-12 months apart Late Ages 13-14 2 Doses 6-12 months apart Late – Extra Dose Ages 15-26 3 Doses 1st dose at visit one 2nd dose 1-2 months later 3rd dose 6 months after 1st dose This tool was supported in part by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Cooperative Agreement Number NH23IP000953-03.
