Kaiser Permanente Study Finds Boys More Likely to Receive HPV Vaccine When Their Mothers Receive Preventive Care
Date:7/18/2013

PASADENA, Calif., July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Boys are more likely to receive the quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine if their mothers receive flu shots or Pap screenings, according to a Kaiser Permanente study published in the American Journal of Public Health. The study examined the electronic health records of more than 250,000 boys aged 9 to 17 years enrolled in the Kaiser Permanente Southern California health plan and found that a total of 4,055 boys – or 1.6 percent of the study participants – initiated the HPV4 vaccine between October 2009 and December 2010. Researchers found that the HPV4 vaccination rate was 16 percent higher in boys whose mothers had received a flu shot within the previous year than in boys whose mothers did not. In addition, the vaccination rate was 13 percent higher in boys whose mothers had a Pap screening in the last three years than boys whose mothers did not have a Pap test.

The study also found that boys whose mothers had a history of genital warts were 47 percent more likely to receive the HPV4 vaccine, although the researchers note that this association did not reach statistical significance. In addition, HPV4 vaccine uptake was found to be higher among boys who were Hispanic, resided in neighborhoods with lower levels of income and educational attainment, and enrolled in a Medicaid program.

"Our study findings suggest that a mother's receipt of preventive services may have an impact on their son's HPV4 vaccination," said Rulin Hechter, MD, PhD, study lead author and researcher with the Kaiser Permanente Southern California Department of Research & Evaluation. "These mothers might be more familiar with preventive measures for HPV infection, influencing their decision to have their children vaccinated."

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, HPV is a common virus that is easily spread by skin-to-skin co
