Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a group of viruses linked to multiple health conditions, including six different types of cancer. HPV is a very common virus; nearly 80 million people—about one in four—are currently infected in the United States. About 14 million people, including teens, become infected with HPV each year. Fortunately, there is a vaccine available to prevent HPV infection.

As cancer prevention advocates and as a part of the state-wide HPV Vaccination Campaign 2020, Eastern Idaho Public Health will be providing HPV vaccine throughout the health district during the month of February. There is no out-of-pocket cost to our clients receiving this vaccine.

Appointments: Call your county office for an appointment. Walk-ins are welcome, based on availability of vaccine. Teton County: 208-354-2220, Feb. 27, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
