You wouldn't give your kid half a pair of shoes

It's ALL for Them.

Tell Me About HPV Vaccination

The vaccine prevents certain types of Human Papillomavirus, or HPV. It is proven safe, effective, and protects your child throughout their life. 

HPV is extremely common. The virus has many types, some of which are frequently responsible for causing six different kinds of cancer, which affect both men and women. More than 31,000 people get HPV-related cancers every year. Since most adults will contract some strain of HPV during their lifetime, it’s important for both boys and girls to be vaccinated against HPV to prevent the related cancers and other illnesses.

Much like when you vaccinate your children as infants against other illnesses, it is best to give your child the vaccine long before they’re ever exposed to HPV. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends starting the HPV vaccine series when children are 11-12 years old. 

Want more information? Here’s a fact sheet on the HPV vaccine

The HPV vaccine will be offered at some HISD middle schools’ adolescent vaccination clinics this school year, along with other recommended vaccines for your child’s age group. The HPV vaccine is also available at your local clinic, and should be covered free of charge through most health insurance plans, including CHIP and Medicaid. Some clinics may charge an administrative fee, depending on your plan.

Tell Me About the Clinics

To help you protect your child’s health, certain HISD middle schools will be hosting free adolescent vaccination clinics, where your child can receive all of the recommended shots for their age group on campus during school hours. Most clinics are sponsored and staffed by Texas Children’s Hospital®, with some hosted and run by Memorial Hermann Health Centers for Schools

Vaccines provided will include: 

  • Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis)
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Meningococcal (MCV4)
  • Hepatitis A
  • Influenza (Flu)

Remember: All is better than some.

These recommended vaccines are a very important part of keeping your child healthy. Make sure you give your child all of the recommended vaccines.

Here are the forms you should read before your child’s vaccination clinic.
