Coos Bay, September 3, 2019: Bay Area Hospital is hosting a free human papillomavirus (HPV) Q&A Prevention Session on Thursday, September 26 from 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Community Health and Education Center in North Bend. The public is invited to attend this free session for information and to answer questions parents may have regarding vaccinating their children (boys and girls).
The HPV vaccine can prevent 6 different types of cancer, and The American Cancer Society recommends that boys and girls ages 11-12 receive the vaccine, as it work best if the vaccine series is completed by age 13. Children should still be vaccinated if it has been delayed.
Clinicians will be on-site to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have regarding the vaccination. The session is free, no registration is required, light refreshments will be provided, and there will be a door prize for one lucky winner.
If you have questions or need additional information, contact Barbara Bauder at (541) 269- 8543.
