HPV vaccine panel study

This panel study of barriers to access to the HPV vaccine and how they can be overcome was based on a sample of caregivers of girls eligible for the vaccine (11-12 yrears old) that was obtained from physician records at UVA`s Medical Center. Three waves of girls, representing all eligible girls in the three months prior to data collection, were contacted. This allowed sufficient numbers in the sample for analysis.

Virginia HPV Vaccine Uptake Survey

This project was initiated by Jennifer Young, M.D. in response to a mandate passed by the State of Virginia requiring girls to be vaccinated against HPV prior to entry into the sixth grade starting in October 2008. This will in effect exclude women ages 16-26 from required vaccination. The purpose of the survey was to learn how women ages 16-26 are receiving the HPV vaccine and what barriers to vaccination exist for women in this age group.
