Expansion of vaccine for HPV

More from this show

HPV or human papilloma virus is the most common sexually transmitted disease, with about 79 million Americans infected. There are no symptoms and the virus is hard to detect with traditional screening. Because HPV can lead to cancer, a vaccine was created in 2005 and given to people ages 13 to 26. In October, the FDA approved the vaccine for use in men and women ages 27 to 45. Arizona Horizon producer Shana Fischer sat down with Dr. Natalie Godbee, a gynecological oncologist from Cancer Treatment Centers of America, to talk about the vaccine.
