Dedicated to reducing the burden of cancer in Ohio.

Vaccines for Cancer Prevention/HPV-Associated Cancers

Objectives and Strategies

Objective: Increase the percentage of adolescents 13 to 17 years of age who are upto-date with human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, especially among groups experiencing disproportionate effects residing in non-metropolitan (rural) areas of the state, from 58.2% to 70% in 2025 and 80% in 2030 (baseline: 2018 National Immunization Survey – Teen Survey).

Objective: Increase the percentage of young adults 18 to 26 years of age who are up-to-date with HPV vaccine from 25.1% to 50% in 2025 and 80% in 2030 (baseline: 2018 National Center for Health Statistics).

Objective: By 2030, decrease the HPV-associated cancer incidence rate in Appalachian Ohio (14.3 per 100,000) to the rate in non-Appalachian Ohio (12.4 per 100,000) to eliminate the disparity between Appalachian and non-Appalachian Ohio (baseline: 2017 OCISS).
