(WTNH) — The American Cancer Society’s Mission: HPV Cancer Free campaign is pushing for more people to get the HPV vaccine.

The goal of the mission is to increase vaccination rates to 80% by 2026, which marks 20 years after the introduction of the HPV vaccine.

Through a combination of vaccination, screening, and treatment of pre-cancers, researchers say we can eliminate cervical cancer in the United States, with other vaccine-preventable HPV cancers to follow.
