We examined psychologic responses to information about human papillomavirus (HPV) in young women within the age range of the UK's HPV vaccination "catch-up" program (13-16 years). Respondents absorbed HPV information without becoming worried, were receptive to cervical screening and vaccination, and these attitudes were enhanced by presentation of relevant information.
