Parents comfortable with vaccination for sexually transmitted infections for adolescent children

ine were much more salient dimensions to these parents than were sexual transmissibility.If these findings are replicated in other samples of parents, it will be important to inform pediatricians and other physicians and nurses that most parents will be likely to accept recommendations regarding STI vaccination."

Editorial: Parental Acceptability of Vaccines for Sexually Transmitted Infections

In an editorial accompanying this study, Susan L. Rosenthal, Ph.D., Lawrence R. Stanberry, M.D., Ph.D., from the University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, write that "vaccines have great promise for the reduction of transmission of STIs." Vaccines for some STIs may be on the market soon and "parents will be the key decision makers about vaccine acceptance for adolescents."

"We must continue to examine (1) characteristics of vaccines that influence decision making; (2) how parents and adolescents process information both about the diseases and the vaccines; (3) characteristics of parents and adolescents associated with vaccine acceptance, and (4) barriers to vaccination. The findings from such research will facilitate the development of educational programs, strategies for dissemination, and the creation of policies necessary to reduce barriers."

Vaccination will only be effective if it is taken up widely, the editorial authors added. "Thus, it will take a body of research on STI vaccine acceptance, such as that being conducted by Zimet et al, to ensure that once STI vaccines are available we can maximize uptake by parents and health care professionals of adolescents," they concluded.
