Abstract

Objectives: To conduct outcome and process evaluations of school-located HPV vaccination clinics in partnership with a local health department. Methods: Temporary clinics provided the HPV vaccine to middle school girls in Guilford County, North Carolina, in 2009-2010. Results: HPV vaccine initiation was higher among girls attending host schools than satellite schools (6% vs. 1%, OR = 6.56, CI = 3.99-10.78). Of the girls who initiated HPV vaccine, 80% received all 3 doses. Private insurance or federal programs paid for most vaccine doses. Conclusions: Lessons learned for creating more effective school-health department partnerships include focusing on host schools and delivering several vaccines to adolescents, not just HPV vaccine alone.
