HPV Vaccine Acceptability Study Announces Results
Date:6/15/2009

FORT WORTH, Texas, June 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Female caregivers of African American girls are reluctant to have their children vaccinated against the human papillomavirus (HPV), according to a new study by the Center for Community Health (CCH) at the UNT Health Science Center in Fort Worth, Texas.

The HPV Vaccine Acceptability Study discovered a few major themes from its focus groups:

  • Most participants lacked information about the virus and the vaccine, but wanted a source of unbiased, trustworthy information.
  • Many participants were unwilling to have their children vaccinated for HPV due to negative perceptions of the vaccine. These perceptions were caused by distrust of the medical/ pharmaceutical community, as well as suspicions over the governor's mandate for the vaccine.
  • Many participants were concerned about the long-term side effects of the vaccine on their children.
  • Participants' decisions whether to vaccinate their children were complicated by the association between HPV and sexual activity. Many participants said they were teaching their child to abstain until marriage.

Furthermore, while the majority of women had learned about HPV and the HPV vaccine through TV commercials, they indicated that this was not a trusted source of information. Instead, women wanted to receive information from their children's schools or primary care physicians. Participants also indicated that they would like the information to be more readily available through other community avenues, like churches and libraries.

Participants were the mother or primary female caregiver of an African American girl between 7 and 18 years old. They had to be 24 years old or older, reside in Tarrant County, and speak English. When asked about their education levels, 32.6 percent had graduated high school or received their GED; 39.5
