Support HPV Cancer Prevention

In honor of National Immunization Awareness Month, the Denver Metro Alliance for HPV Prevention is urging parents to have their preteens and teens vaccinated against HPV. HPV infection can lead to several types of cancers in women and men..

Getting the HPV vaccine at 11-12 years of age results in a higher immune response to protect against HPV infection. 

Joining our Thunderclap shows your support for HPV cancer prevention by helping build awareness of this important vaccine. You have the power to help us share this important message.


Parents be sure your preteens and teens are vaccinated against HPV

Back to school time is an excellent opportunity to be sure children are up-to-date on immunizations, incluing HPV vaccine.
