Hump Day: HPV prevention for XY

10.12.2011

Hey guys! Ready for shots?  Not your flu shot (though if you haven't gotten that, you may want that too), and we're not talking about the party anthem. We're talking about the HPV vaccine.  

The HPV vaccine may seem like it's only for women and girls, but the FDA has approved the vaccine for men and boys to receive, too.  It helps to prevent the spread of HPV, reduces certain types of cancer risks, and keeps genital warts at bay.  

Interested in protecting yourself and others from HPV?  Come to the Student Health and Wellness Center to get yours!
