HPV vaccines| Disparities in their acceptance and use

<p> The purpose of this study is to determine whether there is a disparity in the receipt or uptake of the HPV vaccine by race/ethnicity in young females, and whether the sources of information about HPV and the HPV vaccine affects the receipt of the HPV vaccine by race/ethnicity. Data from the California Health Interview Survey was utilized in analyzing these factors related to females who received the HPV vaccine. Although there were significant differences between receipt of the vaccine by race/ethnicity, overall vaccine receipt was low for all groups, which is consistent with other findings. Vaccination rates also varied by age, which likely was the result of better access to the HPV vaccine for younger females and by source of information.</p>
