BACK-TO-SCHOOL HPV Awareness
For the next couple of months, the LWVFL Repro Health & Justice Action Team is promoting the important issue of HPV  awareness/vaccine.
 
"The preteen years are the best time to vaccinate because the vaccine is most effective if it’s given long before the first sexual contact and first exposure to the virus. Research has shown that children ages 11 to 12 respond better to the immunization and produce higher levels of antibodies that fight infection compared to older children."
