Study investigators suggest that adolescent and young adult lesbians appear to be less likely to initiate HPV vaccination than their heterosexual counterparts. Among those aged 15 to 25 who had heard of the vaccine, 8.5% of lesbians had initiated vaccination, compared with a rate of 28.4% observed among heterosexual counterparts.
