Quels sont les freins et les limitations à la vaccination anti-papillomavirus, dans une population de collégiens ayant été sensibilisée par un programme de promotion de la santé sexuelle et de la vaccination ?

Abstract : Background : the cervical cancer, a papillomavirus inducted cancer, is three times deadlier in Reunion island than mainland France. Prevented by cervical smear and vaccination, its vaccine coverage in Reunion Island is the weakest in France. An outgoing randomized study assesses the impact of a sexual health and vaccination program, on a mid-school student population. First results show a small amount of vaccinated students. The purpose of this study is to understand obstacles to HPV vaccination, in order to improve vaccination coverage in Reunion Island. Method : qualitative study, with semi-structured and group interviews, on a mid-school student population database, in May 2021 in Reunion Island. A grounded theory analysis was applied. Results : Despite the positive impact of a prevention program on HPV awareness, students had a negative vision of vaccination, and a lack of interest. Their decisions were influenced mainly by their parents, insufficiently informed and wary, but also by their attending physician, who they can trust. Conclusion : Attempts should be made to restore the reputation of vaccination. Vaccine hesitancy must be fought by public information. Sexual taboo needs to be discussed between parents and teenagers. The attending physician needs to be in the center of debates. School prevention programs have a positive effect on awareness, and have to be improved in a multimodal way, and on a large-scale public target.
