Notifying the HPV Register helps providers and patients to ensure HPV vaccine courses are completed.
The HPV Register can help by:
- sending completion statements to those who have received all 3 vaccinations
- sending history statement reminders to those with an incomplete course within the schools program
- providing online overdue dose reports to providers, listing patients who have incomplete courses
- enabling providers to check the vaccination status of their patients (by phone or online)
If HPV doses are not notified to the HPV Register, this may increase the risk of too many doses being administered, or vaccination courses not being completed.
Participation in the HPV Register is also very important for monitoring how the HPV Vaccination Program is working and measuring the effect of the vaccine on HPV-related disease, including cervical cancer.
