Among insured women, aged 19–26 years, those who discussed the HPV vaccine with their physician and received a recommendation were overwhelmingly more likely to be vaccinated. Student status and perception of the personal importance of vaccination were also predictive of vaccination. The strength of the physician's recommendation played a significant role in the decision to be vaccinated, resulting in a 4-fold greater likelihood of vaccination when women received a strong recommendation versus one that was not strong. Health care providers should be well-informed about HPV vaccination and recognize that the strength of their recommendation to patients will foster appropriate uptake.
