Year Range 2012-2022

Percentage of adolescents aged 13-15 years who had received 2 or 3 doses of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine as recommended at time of immunization.

From 2008-2011, the recommendation by the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) was for a 3-dose series for females only. From 2011-2016, the recommendation included both males and females using a 3-dose series. Beginning in 2016, ACIP recommended males and females beginning their vaccination series before 15 years of age receive a 2-dose, rather than 3-dose series.
