During the last decade, several new vaccines, including the meningococcal conjugate (MCV4), tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis (Tdap), human papillomavirus (HPV), and most recently seasonal influenza (flu) vaccines, have been added to the recommended vaccine schedule for adolescents. Despite vaccines being an important component of adolescent health care, immunization rates in adolescents are far lower than those for younger children.

In this CME activity, leading experts will discuss the current recommended HPV immunization schedules and effective communication techniques for discussing HPV vaccine safety, the health benefits of vaccination, and therapeutic advances in vaccine development.
