Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) -- HPV (Human Papillomavirus) Vaccine: What You Need to Know

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) educates people about the vaccination for the human papillomavirus (HPV). It explains that HPV types are associated with many cancers, including cervical cancer in females, as well as genital warts in both females and males, and that HPV infection usually comes from sexual contact. It provides facts about the HPV vaccine and provides a recommended dosage schedule for adolescents, but clarifies that there are several exceptions and recommends talking with a health care provider. The VIS identifies who should not get the vaccine, discusses risks and side effects, and explains what to look for and what to do in the event of a severe allergic reaction. Contact information for the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) is provided, along with tips for how people can learn more about the HPV vaccine.

The English-language VIS was created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. The translations are provided by the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) and its partner organizations.
