Over 80% of all sexually active adults will carry some strain of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) during their lifetime. To date, there are over 100 different strains, with at least 30 of them attributing to the cause of cervical and throat cancer to those who are infected. Since the FDA's approval of HPV Vaccinations in 2006, we are now starting to see a decline in the numbers of infected teenagers.
If you are ages 25 and under, now is the best time to get your HPV Vaccination in Laconia NH. It is recommended that both men and women receive their vaccinations, since there can be serious health implications for both sexes once infected with HPV.
