About the St. Jude HPV Cancer Prevention Program

Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a very common virus in both men and women that causes six types of cancer. Nearly all men and women get the virus at some point in their lives. There is good news. A safe and effective vaccine that provides long-lasting protection against HPV cancers is available. 

HPV vaccination is recommended for everyone aged 9 to 26 years and for some people aged 27 to 45 years. HPV vaccination is cancer prevention. However, uptake of HPV vaccination in the United States has been slow and lower than the national Healthy People 2030 goal of 80%.
