- Consider standing orders, provider reminders combined with health system interventions.
- 9712 male adolescents.
- HPV vaccination coverage increased significantly from 8.3% (2011) to 57.3% (2016; test for trend P<.05>
- Prevalence of provider recommendations increased significantly from 14.2% (2011) to 65.5% (2016; test for trend P<.05 style="list-style-type:circle;">
