Prevent HPV

Human papillomavirus (HPV) infects men and women.

Every year in the United States about 10,000 women develop cervical cancer and 4,000 die from the disease. These women are wives, moms, daughters, sisters and friends.

HPV has also been linked to genital warts, anal, penile and throat cancers in men. Each year about one-third of cancers caused by HPV occur in males. These men are husbands, dads, sons, brothers and friends.

Why take a chance? Vaccinate today for life-long protection.
