Live 'Ask The Experts' Wednesday Will Address Implementation Of HPV Vaccine Gardasil

As physicians begin to administer Merck's new human papillomavirus vaccine Gardasil, panelists on this "Ask the Experts" will focus on questions such as: What are the guidelines for who should get the vaccine and at what age? Who will pay for it? What is the best way to ensure access to the vaccine? Kaisernetwork.org Managing Editor Jill Braden Balderas will moderate the discussion with Anne Schuchat, director of CDC's National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases; Renee Jenkins, professor and chair of the Howard University College of Medicine Department of Pediatrics and Child Health and president-elect of the American Academy of Pediatrics; and Alina Salganicoff, Kaiser Family Foundation vice president and director of women's health policy. Submit your questions in advance by e-mailing ask@kaisernetwork.org or by calling 1-888-KAISER8 (524-7378) during the scheduled showtime. The live webcast will begin online at 2 p.m. ET at kaisernetwork.org.
