Webinar: Addressing Vaccine Hesitancy: Intervening to Increase HPV Vaccine Uptake
December 11, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
While vaccines to prevent Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection have proven to be extremely effective both in protecting against HPV, as well as reducing the risk of cervical cancer caused by HPV strains, acceptance of this cancer-preventing vaccine has struggled to reach the same level of acceptance as other vaccines recommended at this age. Providers have a unique opportunity to address vaccine hesitancy and reinforce the decision to vaccinate. Join the American Cancer Society and the California Immunization Coalition for a webinar on addressing vaccine hesitancy and intervening to increase HPV vaccine uptake.
- Understand the processes that help make vaccine acceptance the “default choice.”
- Understand the continuum of vaccine acceptance.
- Describe the main reasons for vaccine hesitancy.
