Predictors of interest in HPV vaccination: A study of British adolescents



Predictors of interest in HPV vaccination: A study of British adolescents



Vaccine 27(18): 2483-2488



Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination is now offered to adolescent girls in the UK. Adolescents over 16 years old are likely to make their own decision about the vaccination. The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to assess acceptability of HPV vaccination among female adolescents (16 -- 19 years) and investigate socio-cultural variation in intended acceptance. Participants were recruited through two further-education colleges in England.
