Closing the Gap between Urban and Rural HPV Vaccination Rates
Tuesday, September 18, 2018
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Eastern/ 9:00 am – 10:00 am Pacific
In addition to a yearly flu vaccine, CDC recommends three vaccines for adolescents to protect against serious diseases: meningococcal conjugate vaccine, HPV vaccine, and Tdap vaccine. Nationally, HPV vaccination rates have been increasing in recent years, and rates of Tdap and meningococcal conjugate vaccine have been high for several years. However, recent data have shown that fewer adolescents in rural areas are getting the HPV and meningococcal conjugate vaccines compared to adolescents in urban areas.
This webinar will highlight the latest data on adolescent vaccination coverage nationally and among rural areas, examine various factors that may influence uptake of the HPV vaccine in rural communities, and present evidence-based strategies to help address this disparity.
Join the Rural Health Information Hub on Tuesday, September 18 at 12:00 PM ET for a webinar titled, “Closing the Gap between Urban and Rural HPV Vaccination Rates.”
