It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.

Important Vaccines Made Available to College Students!
The Comanche County Health Department is making available the HPV vaccine at no cost to college students for a limited time.
HPV (Human Papillomavirus) - protects against the human papillomaviruses that cause most cervical cancers, anal cancer, and genital warts.
HPV is a common virus that is spread through sexual contact. Most of the time HPV has no symptoms so people do not know they have it. There are approximately 40 types of genital HPV. Some types can cause cervical cancer in women and can also cause other kinds of cancer in both men and women. Other types can cause genital warts in both males and females.
**The vaccine is available for male and female students 19-26. It is given as a 3-dose vaccine.**
