Low-Income Teens Have Best Shot At Getting HPV Vaccine When it comes to getting the HPV vaccine to protect against cervical cancer, teens below the poverty line are doing better than the rest, according to data released by the CDC. Among teenage girls ages 13-17 whose total family income was below the federal poverty line, 67.2% have received the first dose of HPV vaccine, compared to 57.7% for those at or above the poverty line. For teen boys, it’s 51.6% compared to 39.5%. (NPR, 7/30)
