Sample HPV Facebook Posts

A series of intro texts, most with accompanying links, images, or videos, that providers and practices can use or adapt for posts on their Facebook pages.

* NOTE: In some cases (e.g, #5 & #21), the intro texts may seems short or somewhat lacking in context. That’s because they’re designed to play off the title of the link, which will appear both on the practice Facebook page and the parents’/caregivers’ Facebook news feed. In these cases, the intro text and link title work together to have the desired effect.
