There has been a lot of recent media attention surrounding HPV vaccine. For good information please view this video between Katie Couric and Dr. Anne Schuchat from the CDC.
Kressly Pediatrics uses Gardasil
in our office. Beginning at age 11-12 both boys and girls are eligible for this cancer-preventing vaccine. If you are interested in getting your child started on the 2 (prior to age 15) or 3 dose series (after age 15), give the office a call and make an appointment with one of the nursing staff.
We recommend that you schedule appointments for your 2nd and 3rd doses at the time you receive your first, so completion of the series doesn't get lost in your busy lives. If you can't make one of those appointments, we will be happy to reschedule but at least it will be on your calendar to remind you. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
