Vignette summary
The vignette centered around Ana and Diego, 11-year-old twins from the town in which the discussion was conducted. They have heard about the HPV vaccine in the past, but their mother was concerned it could be harmful and one of the twins was worried about the needle. Today, while with their mother at a health fair in the park, they saw a brief video about the HPV vaccine and liked what they learned, especially that the vaccine can prevent cancer. Now they can get the first shot at the health fair.
