Survey of American women finds STD vaccine viewed positively
Date:8/24/2010

that did not increase interest in the vaccine included having a friend or relative who had cervical cancer or personally having had a prior sexually transmitted infection.

Increased acceptibility was found in women who had experienced a genital warts outbreak, had at least one abnormal Pap test, previously had heard about the HPV vaccine or who had had a flu shot within the past two years.

"With the accumulating empirical evidence that vaccination of women over the age of 26 can be beneficial, it is important to understand specific factors associated with HPV vaccine acceptability," said Dr. Stupiansky. "This study clarifies some of the issues for acceptance including cost and prior knowledge of the vaccine.

The findings of the research also suggest that interest in the vaccine among adult women may be substantially dampened if insurance coverage does not reduce the out-of-pocket costs of HPV vaccination. Health insurance and/or public financing (the Vaccine for Children Program) covers HPV vaccination costs for virtually all females 9 through 17 years of age.

HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the U.S. and can be found in more than 25 percent of all women aged 14 to 59 years. The highest rates are among women between the ages of 20 and 24 years but remain above 25 percent for women up to age 49. An estimated 1.6 million new infections occur each year in women older than 26 years of age. HPV is responsible for all cases of cervical cancer and genital warts and is the cause of some cases of anal, throat, vulvar and vaginal cancers.
