  • Overview

    Vaccine hesitancy, which refers to a delay in acceptance or refusal of vaccines, can be prevalent despite the availability of vaccination services and an overall recommendation for them. In fact, it’s been reported in over 90 percent of countries worldwide, and vaccine refusal has been associated with numerous outbreaks of many serious—yet preventable—diseases. 

    To address the threat vaccine hesitancy poses to public health, this article will review how the HPV vaccine helps protect patients from cervical and oropharyngeal cancers and how we can encourage vaccination in our practice.
