Abstract

The aim of the study was to evaluate the impact of general practitioners (GPs) follow-up of unvaccinated girls in the Danish Human Papillomavirus catch-up vaccination programme. Telephone interviews were conducted with the GPs to explore their follow-up procedure. The girls were divided into two groups: 1) girls contacted by their GP and 2) girls not contacted by their GP. Ten months later 61% of the girls, who had been contacted, had started vaccination in the follow-up group compared to 53% of girls, who had not been contacted (p < 0.02). Follow-up by GPs increased the likelihood of subsequent vaccination in a group of unvaccinated girls.
