Orland Township is offering HPV shots for eligible children, both male and female, 18 and under at all monthly immunization clinics.

The three-dose vaccine is recommended for preteen boys and girls, age 11 or 12. It’s important to vaccinate at this age to protect before ever being exposed to the virus. The vaccine also has a more effective response during these ages. However, individuals up to age 26 can receive the vaccine.

HPV is an important vaccine because it protects against the human papillomavirus infection, which one in four people in the U.S. are infected with. HPV can cause cervical, vaginal and vulvar cancers in women, penile cancer in men and anal cancer, cancer of the back of the throat and genital warts in both men and women.

For additional information, please call (708) 403-4222.
