To the Oregonian members

I found out that the Washington County Health clinic is starting a program in a few weeks where they will only charge the administrative costs (about $8) for the HPV vaccine. I don't know all the specifics, but I am pretty sure this is a program under FPEP (the Family Planning Enhancement Program), so it is for low-income women.

For those who don't know about FPEP, it provide free birth control and annual pap exams for low-income women. It lasts for a year, and after that year you can re-apply.

$8 is a very low price for preventing cervical cancer. My nurse practitioner said to check witht he clinic in a few weeks or a month to see when the program is launching. Their phone number is 503-846-8881
