Human Papillomavirus (HPV)

Why Public Schools Should Require the HPV Vaccine

If you live in Rhode Island and your children go to public school, they will need to be vaccinated against the Human Papilloma Virus, or HPV. This is a new requirement—and not everyone likes it. Those who oppose the change point out that you catch HPV through sex, unlike infections like measles or whooping cough that you can catch if someone in the classroom has it and coughs on you. Why, they say, should the HPV vaccine be required for school?
 
Because it could save lives, that’s why.

Cervical cancer vaccine might work after just 1 shot, not 3

Following outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases in the United States in the last couple of years, the American Medical Association approved a policy to seek tighter limits on non-medical exemptions to vaccinations.
 
The policy specifically recommends that states establish a method to involve "qualified public health physicians" to determine the vaccines required for admission to schools, as well as that physicians and public health officials be obligated to accept immunization in the absence of an accepted medical reason.

HPV vaccinations increase with electronic health record prompts

A recent study found that patients whose electronic health records sent out reminders about the HPV vaccine were more likely to receive the full dosage of the vaccine to prevent cervical cancer.
 
Researchers at the University of Michigan found that young adults ages of 9 to 18 were three times more likely to begin receiving HPV vaccinations and 10 times more likely to finish the doses of HPV vaccinations if they received reminders from their health providers. The reminders were sent electronically when the patient was due for a vaccine.

China Human Vaccine Industry Report, 2015-2018

A vaccine is a preventive biological product for human use that prevents and controls the occurrence and prevalence of infectious diseases, so the demand for such products is relatively rigid. Due to suspected deaths stemming from vaccination and some companies' (such as Shenzhen Kangtai, Tiantan Biological and Dalian Hissen) production halts of some products because of their failure to pass new GMP certification, China's human vaccine lot release volume in 2014 declined by 2.4% year on year to 791 million doses.
