The article reports that only two percent of the total number of eligible women in the U.S. have completed the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine in 2008. According to a survey conducted before the approval of HPV vaccine in 2006, physicians are likely to vaccinate their patients against HPV. However, 24 months after the HPV vaccine approval, medical audits found that only 10 percent of young women and girls have been vaccinated in the first quarter of 2008 and only two percent have completed the three doses.
