47 Common Immunization Misconceptions Do you need to screen for HPV before giving the HPV vaccine? NoIf someone has an abnormal Pap smear, do you give them the HPV vaccine? YesDo you continue to do Pap smears following the HPV vaccine series? YesIs pregnancy testing indicated before giving vaccines? No(other than small pox)Pregnancy screening? YesDo you have to check Hep B titers in teens? NoDoes an 18-year-old need a 2nd varicella immunization? YesCan you get the flu from a flu shot? No
