    active 1 week, 2 days ago

    Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is an infection that affects both males and females and is transmitted mainly through sexual contact. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are over 150 strains of the virus and over 14 million people are infected yearly. Once exposed to the virus there is a chance that it may regress spontaneously. However, HPV can cause genital warts and even cancers of the cervix, vagina, anus, penis, mouth and throat. The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2017 there will be:
    about 12,820 new cases of invasive cervical cancer diagnosed, approximately 4,210 women will die from cervical cancer, about 2,120 new cases of penile cancer diagnosed and approximately 360 deaths from penile cancer

    In 2006, the first HPV vaccine was manufactured. The goal of the vaccine is to prevent genital warts and cancer. Both males and females should be vaccinated between the ages of nine through 26 years of age.

    In calendar year 2016, a total of 253 people received HPV vaccine in Garrett County. There were 126 males and 124 females vaccinated. Three people vaccinated did not have gender […]

  • Group logo of Adolescent Well Child Checks 10
    active 4 weeks ago

    Garrett County is often the lowest county in the state for yearly adolescent well child checks. It is important for the adolescents of our community to be seen yearly for this preventive visit where we can ensure that these children are healthy and developing normally. Age appropriate education and screening is also completed at a well child visit as well as updating immunizations if needed. And, a yearly well child check can help to catch problems early, when they may be easier to treat. Let’s share ideas and collaborate on ways to increase awareness and get our adolescents in to see their doctor for a yearly […]
