An Opportunity for Cancer Prevention During Preadolescence and Adolescence: Stopping HPV Related Cancer through HPV Vaccination

OBJECTIVE: We conducted a descriptive study of the correlates of refusal and acceptance of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination by rural parents of preadolescent and adolescent children. We hypothesized that the correlates of parents who allow their children aged 9 to 13 years to get the HPV vaccine and those of parents who do not allow vaccination would differ significantly.
