Abstract

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is currently the most prevalent sexually transmitted infection in the United States with an estimated 79 million people infected. In the state of Connecticut, HPV vaccination is not required for entrance into the 9th grade and because of this, there is less awareness of the importance of HPV prevention and immunization among high school students. As of 2013, 37.7-49.9% of females ages 13-17 living in Connecticut completed the HPV vaccine regimen. My objective for this project was to promote awareness about HPV infection and HPV vaccination among high school students.
