BCH lecture: How to prevent your child from getting cancer-causing HPV later in life 1/18/24

  • Category: Cancer

Early vaccination is key, way before your child becomes sexually active

HPV, or human papillomavirus, infections are so common that nearly all men and women will get HPV at some point in their lives during intimate skin-to-skin contact. Sometimes, HPV infections can cause certain types of cancers:

  • Cervix, vagina, and vulva cancers in women
  • Penis cancer in men
  • Anus and throat cancers in both women and men

It’s best to get your child vaccinated early, way before becoming sexually active and when their immune response to the vaccine is strongest.

Hear certified nurse-midwives Jessica Dacic, CNM, DNP, and Paige Swales, CNM, MSN, describe the risks of HPV and ways it’s transmitted. Then learn why the HPV vaccine is important and when it’s the right time to get your child vaccinated.
