American Cancer Society offers updated guidelines for HPV vaccination


The American Cancer Society (ACS) has updated its guidelines for human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination.

This follows a review of 2 new 2019 Federal Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).

One of the changes that ACIP and ACS recommend is that girls and boys should receive 2 doses of the HPV vaccine between the ages of 9 and 12. ACIP also recommends that adults aged 27 to 45 years should also receive the vaccination, though the ACS does not endorse this.

For further details on the new guidelines and more, read the full article on Drug Topics.
