HPV News

Good news for patients ages 11 to 14 -- they will only need two doses of the HPV shot, not three. This is the new recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration as of October 2016.

Clinical trials showed that two doses of HPV vaccine in children ages 9 to 14 produced an immune response similar or higher than the response in young adults (ages 15 to 26) who needed three doses.

Generally, preteens receive their first dose of HPV vaccine at the same time as the whooping cough and meningitis vaccines at their 11-year-old well check. Two doses of HPV given at least 6 months apart at ages 11 and 12 years will provide safe, effective, and long-lasting protection against HPV cancers. 


Adolescents ages 13 and 14 are also able to receive HPV vaccination on the new two-dose schedule. Teens and young adults who start the series when they are 15 and older will continue to need three doses of HPV vaccines.

Johnson County Pediatrics will not offer intranasal flu
vaccines (flu mist) during the 2016-2017 flu season. The pediatricians are following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Johnson County Pediatrics will offer flu shots for children 6 months of age and older. Dates and times of our flu clinics will be announced in the next couple of weeks.

“We understand the impact this may have on many of our patients, but our primary objective is to make sure we offer our patients the best, safest and most effective health care we can,“ said Dr. Christine White. “We encourage all of our families to get flu shots for their children who are 6 months of age and older. We can’t emphasize enough the importance of flu immunizations.”

 In June the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended flu mist not be used in the upcoming 2016-2017 season.  ​ New data revealed that currently only the inactivated influenza vaccine (flu shot) provides protection against flu.

Flu Clinics will be offered at Johnson County Pediatrics beginning in September and will continue throughout the fall and into winter. Flu shots will also be available at regular appointments.
