The study aims to expand the evidence supporting pharmacy provision of adolescent vaccines, including human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. In the first part of the study, we will characterize parents' attitudes and support for pharmacy provision of adolescent vaccines in a national survey. In the second part of the study, we will provide HPV vaccines and other vaccines (Tdap, meningococcal, varicella, influenza) to 100 adolescents in a local community pharmacy in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. This portion of the study will identify the systems and workflow needed to provide vaccines effectively and safely, characterize parents' and their adolescents' attitudes toward receiving vaccine services in a pharmacy, and characterize pharmacists' attitudes toward providing adolescent vaccine services in a pharmacy.
