January Is Cervical Health Awareness Month

Sommer adds, “A great push in the fight against cervical cancer is increasing awareness of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. Experts believe that women must be infected with HPV before they develop cervical cancer. The HPV vaccine has been shown to be highly effective in preventing HPV infection and therefore, cervical cancer risk. The Health Department reminds area residents that they have the HPV vaccine series available to both girls and boys between the ages of 9 and 18. The vaccine should be given before sexual activity begins and HPV exposure increases.”
