August’s Tip from Dr. Polko

August is National Immunization Awareness Month

It is very important to make sure that you receive all of the vaccines that are recommended for you by your physician. Vaccines can help prevent many diseases and viruses that you could be exposed to during your life.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted virus in the U.S. More than half of sexually active men and women are infected at some point in their lives. HPV normally doesn’t have any symptoms, but it can cause cervical cancer in women. It is important to come in for your annual exam and have a Pap Smear done, which will test you for HPV usually every 3 years if you are low risk.

Gardasil is the vaccine given to help prevent HPV and most cases of cervical cancer in women. The vaccine is recommended for girls and boys that are 11 to 12 years of age, but it can be given as early as 9 years of age. For anyone who did not have it done at 11 to 12 years of age, it is recommended that you receive it between 13 through 26 years of age. It is a 3-dose series, so you will have another one 1-2 months after your initial dose and then again at 6 months.

We offer Gardasil to our patients, but we are unable to vaccinate anyone under the age of 18 if they have Medical Assistance. Call our office today for an appointment to discuss this with a provider.
