The article offers the author's comments on the effectiveness of quadrivalent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine in reducing the incidence of cervical cancer among all women. It is stated that although the vaccine has some limitations, to maintain public health support of HPV vaccinations, cervical disease reduction must occur as soon as possible. It is suggested that to accelerate this disease reduction, public health emphasis must be on vaccinating all women regardless of past HPV exposure.
