Resumen

PORTILLO-ROMERO, Alejandra Jalil et al. HPV vaccine acceptance is high among adults in Mexico, particularly in people living with HIV. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2018, vol.60, n.6, pp.658-665.  Epub 22-Ago-2019. ISSN 0036-3634.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21149/10182.

Objective.

To measure HPV vaccine acceptance in diverse Mexican adult popula­tions, taking into account HIV status.

Materials and methods:

A total of 1 329 men and women, with and without HIV, participated in one of three intervention studies, offering HPV vaccination, carried out in the states of Morelos, Tlaxcala and Mexico City; either the bivalent (Morelos n=103, Tlaxcala n=127) or quadrivalent HPV-vaccine (Mexico City n=1 099) was offered.

Results:

HPV vaccine was accepted by 80.3% of participants; acceptance was higher in people living with HIV than those without (84.4 vs. 78%, p=0.004). Women had greater HPV infection knowledge (p<0.0001) than men and slightly higher (p=0.4) vaccine acceptance. The main reason for vaccine non-acceptance among HIV-positive participants was their doctor recommended they not get vaccinated.

Conclusion:

Acceptance of HPV-vaccine was high in men and women regardless of HIV status. Even higher rates of acceptability may be achieved by educating healthcare providers to recommend HPV vaccine to their patients.
