The Adolescent Vaccination Project is a collaboration between the UTHealth School of Public Health, Baylor College of Medicine, and Texas Children's Pediatrics (TCP). The primary goal of this initiative is to increase initiation and completion of HPV vaccination among male and female patients at TCP, a network of over 50 clinics in the greater Houston area.
