Communitywide Survey on HPV and HPV Vaccination
After the pandemic, we continued to focus on public health at community level. The health fair in March was a tremendous success, and we look forward to gathering again next March. Between these two events, we will conduct promotional activities focusing on cancers that are particularly relevant to the Chinese American community. This quarter, the target is the HPV virus. Due to cultural reasons, we seldom discuss HPV, and the miraculous HPV vaccine hasn’t received the attention it deserves. Nationally, the vaccination rate among Chinese people is 20% lower than the mainstream society. We believe the vaccination rate in the community is also highly imbalanced. Therefore, through this survey, we aim to increase every family’s understanding of the HPV virus and raise awareness of the importance of getting vaccinated.
The survey consists of only 18 questions, all in Chinese, and they are all multiple-choice questions. It will take only 3-5 minutes of your time. We hope every family with children aged 9-26 (including girls and boys) in the community can fill out the survey. Such an activity is rare at community level, and to make it widely known, we have invited Ashley, middle school student, to help design the promotional logo.
