Outreach Program Boosts Completion of Three-Dose HPV Vaccine Series 


A multicomponent outreach program increased completion of the three-dose human papillomavirus vaccination series that reduces the risk of cervical cancer, according to a joint study by UT Southwestern Medical Center and Parkland Health & Hospital System.

The study was the first to compare effectiveness in safety-net hospital populations of HPV-specific information and follow-up calls to those overdue for later doses of the vaccine, versus more traditional general vaccine information. The study was published in the journal Pediatrics, and was funded by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas.
