The “Vaccine-related News” section of the VEC’s website now contains information about the pertactin-negative strains that have been identified, and about the relative safety versus efficacy findings related to use of the acellular pertussis vaccine. We hope the article will provide you with information to share with patients or their parents who might have heard the pertactin-negative pertussis stories and come to you with questions.
The PA Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics recently produced a brochure about HPV that is specific for boys and their families. The brochure can be viewed and downloaded from the VEC website, www.prevent-HPV.org.
The Prevent-HPV page contains many questions and answers related not only to the HPV vaccine, but also HPV disease, testing and pregnancy. Because these are questions that we have received through the “ask a question” function, they may be helpful for you to see the types of questions people are asking.
We welcome your input. Please contact us with story ideas, questions or other comments:
