MOLINA-HURTADO, Enrique et al. Vaccine coverage rates against human papillomavirus in Andalusian adolescents and their relationship with social risk and vaccination strategy. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.2, pp.81-84.  Epub July 26, 2021. ISSN 2386-8201.


To ascertain the vaccination coverage rates against human papillomavirus (HPV) and its relationship with the vaccination strategy and belonging to poverty areas.


Descriptive study, audit of medical records.


Four urban Primary Care centres (2015-2018).


Adolescents susceptible to HPV vaccination.

Main measurements:

Vaccination Access, Coverage and Dropout Rates.


366 adolescents (12-16 years). Vaccination Rates: Access 85.5%; Coverage 77,6% and Dropout 9,3%. The oldest adolescents had higher Access (OR 6,1) and Coverage Rates (OR 1,4). Vaccination at the Primary Care centre was associated with a better Coverage Rate (OR 12,7) but the Vaccine Dropout Rate (OR 75,6) significantly increased. Living in a poverty area led to a decrease in Dropout Rate (OR 0,6).


Vaccination in Primary Care centres improved the coverage rate but with a higher risk of not completing the vaccination. Adolescents in poverty areas completed vaccination more frequently.

Keywords : Papillomavirus Vaccines; Poverty Areas; Vaccination Coverage.
