American Cancer Society offers updated guidelines for HPV vaccination

July 14, 2020

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.
