Study of a HPV vaccine among 9-11 year-old girls

Do you have a daughter between the ages of 9 and 11 years of age? Researchers at the University of Arizona are conducting a HPV vaccine study that may interest you! HPV is short for human papillomavirus, a common virus. HPV vaccines are usually given as a series of three injections over 6 months to protect against HPV-related cancers and diseases. This new HPV vaccine study is recruiting 9-11 year-old girls to determine if one injection of the HPV vaccine will produce long-term immune response. Girls who participate in the study will receive Gardasil® 9, an FDA-approved HPV vaccine that offers the widest protection, at no cost and will receive the 2nd and 3rd injections of the vaccine later than the current schedule. Blood tests will be done to check for immune protection against HPV. Girls and their guardians will receive monetary compensation for participating in this study. This study is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. The study should help reduce HPV-related cancers and diseases in our communities and around the globe.
