The PA AAP, with funding from the Vaccine Education Center at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, has produced a new brochure on HPV that is available for you at no cost. "HPV Vaccine for Boys and Young Men" is oriented towards HPV immunization of the younger-aged males for whom HPV vaccine is recommended. There are several excellent patient and family handouts available on Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and HPV vaccine, but none geared specifically towards parents of these younger-aged males.
