Place de la vaccination anti-HPV dans la pratique des médecins généralistes

Abstract : Introduction – In France, HPV vaccination is recommended for girls up to 19 years old and for men who have sex with men (MSM) up to age 27. Vaccine coverage is below 20% for girls and probably lower for MSM. We wanted to evaluate the practice of this vaccine by general practitioners (GPs) regarding these two populations. Material and method – The study was conducted from June 2018 to January 2019, based on an anonymous online questionnaire, which explored physician perceptions and practices related to this vaccine. Results – A total of 337 responses were analyzed ; 50.7% of participants performed at least one gynecological consultation per week, and 84.3% thought they generally knew the sexual orientation of their patients. On a 0 to 100 scale, physicians’ adherence to the vaccine was high for girls and MSM (median 99 [80-100] and 100 [71-100] respectively). As regards girls, GPs checked HPV vaccination status on a contraceptive prescription at a median of 60 [20-90] and, 59.1% proposed it with the 11-12 years old DTPP booster. 62.8% of GPs were aware of the last recommendation including MSM and 15.7% had already offered this vaccine to men. Doctors supported an equal vaccination of both sexes at a median of 100 on a 0 to 100 scale [50-100]. Conclusion – Adherence to HPV vaccination among GPs in this study is strong, but missed opportunities to vaccinate remain in both populations. Undifferentiated vaccination of both sexes would likely improve this aspect.
