Recommended Use GroupRecommendationComments Females Age 9–13 years Recommended Efficacy is greatest prior to first sexual intercourse Although efficacy not demonstrated, immunogenicity data imply high efficacy Females Age 14–26 years Recommended, even after onset of sexual activity May not have been infected Very unlikely to have been infected with all 4 vaccine HPV types Need to be aware that they may already have been infected Females Age 14–26 years with HPV-related cervical or genital disease or current infection Recommended May not have been infected with vaccine HPV types Very unlikely to have been infected with all 4 vaccine HPV types Need to be aware that vaccine probably has no therapeutic effect 15 February 2007 Statement on human papillomavirus vaccine.

Adult Immunization: Strategies to Improve Vaccine Uptake Communication Explaining the need for immunization Clearly conveying the risks 1 Strong physician/provider recommendation 1 1 Burns IT, Zimmerman RK. 2005:54:S58-62 2 PHAC 2006 Canadian Adult Immunization Coverage Survey Recommendation is critical 2
Adult Immunization: Strategies to Improve Vaccine Uptake Patient Visit Strategy Assess vaccination at all visits: stamped chart reminders Improve tracking system CCIAP Adult Immunization Wallet Card Empower patient to become more involved Adult Immunization Questionnaire Szilagyi, PG, et al. 2005:40:152-161.
Summary Immunization does not stop at childhood Prevention of infection by immunization is a lifelong process Health Care Practitioners need to Empower, Educate, Advocate and Recommend
