Willows Pediatrics recently participated in the WIN/WIN/WIN CAMPAIGN for the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) Vaccine conducted by the State of Connecticut Health Department’s Immunization Action Plan Program. The program was designed to raise awareness of the vaccines recommend for middle-school aged children, in particular the three dose series of HPV vaccine.
We are proud to announce that Willows Pediatrics was awarded a certificate for having the maximum number of patients vaccinated against HPV in the 11-12 year old age group.
HPV Vaccine is recommended for all pre-teens and teens, both female and male. This vaccine offers protection from many of the strains of Human Papilloma Virus that cause cervical cancer and genital warts. It is important to note that the vaccine is most effective if it is given long before any exposure occurs.
The physicians at Willows Pediatrics believe in the importance of having every child vaccinated with Human Papilloma Virus vaccine at the age recommended by the Center for Disease Control in order that all individuals receive the best possible protection.
