You Have The Ability To Prevent Cancer

In her children’s pediatrician’s office two years ago, Lockport mother Kelly DiFilippo declined the HPV vaccine for her oldest daughter, and “no one batted an eye,” she said.

“My pediatrician said, ‘I really want you to think about this,’” DiFilippo said. “She really kind of put the pressure on me.”

As HPV vaccination rates continue to lag behind other, less controversial immunizations, medical experts are urging pediatricians to stress the importance of the vaccine just as strongly as they do other shots and to tout the link to cancer prevention.
