We surveyed 105 pediatric clinicians following Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine licensure to identify factors associated with intention to recommend the vaccine to 11- to 12-year-old girls. Pediatricians who were early adopters of medical technologies had fewer concerns about HPV vaccine safety/efficacy, and who anticipated parental vaccine safety/efficacy concerns reported higher intention to recommend the vaccine.
