the HPV vaccine is recommended for all adults in the USA because it reduces the risk of cancer by 88%. If the HPV vaccine was given to all adults 925 000 cases of cancer would be prevented. However only 18.3%of adults were vaccinated between 2011 and 2014 preventing 170 000 cases of cancer. evaluate why only 18.3% of adults were vaccinated
Expert's answer

possible reasons:

- Individuals in many countries with limited cash, such as Kenya, are not able to allow such vaccination.

- in the period from 2011 to 2014 in many countries there was no special permit and license for this vaccine

- in some countries (for example in the UK), women over 18 years old do not get vaccinated, as this seems to be non-paying when preventing cervical cancer. This is due to the fact that as soon as a woman becomes sexually active, she is at risk of infection by the virus.

- different conservative and religious groups are against this vaccine

- Until 2018, immunoprophylaxis was allowed only to people aged 9-26 years. In 2018, the US Food and Drug Administration approved the use of Gardasil 9 vaccine to prevent human papillomavirus in patients aged 27–45 years. Permission was granted after the results of the study
