NET Health is implementing an educational grant from the Texas Department of State Health Services that is aimed to increase the HPV vaccination rates among kids, teens and young adults between the ages of 9 - 26. The HPV vaccine has been proven to prevent the development of cervical cancer, throat cancer, and many diseases by having a person to complete the HPV series of vaccinations during their youth.
"Someone You Love" is an 80 minute movie that tells the story of five families who have been affected in one way or another by someone who did or did not receive the HPV vaccine.
This movie is available for any parent, any school student, college student or interested community member to view. NET Health will also be able to provide 1.3 Continuing Education Units (CEU's) for doctors, nurses, and pharmacists who would like to attend this free public showing of "Someone You Love".
NET Health’s Immunization team will be available after the movie to answer questions and to provide vaccines for HPV and the flu, among others.
