In this cohort of nearly 15000 11-year-old girls with insurance (commercial or Medicaid), the human papillomavirus vaccine was administered at only 1 in 4 well-adolescent visits and approximately one-third of vaccine-related visits, which suggests a substantial number of missed opportunities.

Current evidence to support the efficacy of adjuvant therapies, including therapeutic use of the quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine, for juvenile-onset recurrent respiratory papillomatosis is inconsistent.
