    • Abstract:
      The purpose of the study was to examine social influences and healthcare characteristics on vaccination completion amongfemales who initiated the process. Questionnaire data were analyzed from 536 females and 20.1 % initiated the HPV vaccination but did not complete. Relative to women who completed the vaccination, those who were older at time of vaccine initiation (P<0.001) and reported a parent decision to vaccinate (P<0.001) were more likely to have initiated but not completed the cycle. Higher social influence to be vaccinated scores were associated with initiating but not completing the vaccination (P=0.017). These findings can guide health promotion interventions to encourage vaccine completion. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
