Sammanfattning: Human Papilloma virus (HPV) can lead to cervical cancer, a common form of cancer in Sweden and globally. A vaccine has been developed for the most carcinogenic strains of HPV. In Sweden it is planned that the vaccine be included in the public national vaccination program for children. The aim of this study was to illustrate attitudes towards future sexual habits and preventive cervical cancer screening among young women and parents of girls vaccinated against HPV. This study is a part of a larger project where interviews with young women aged 17 to 26 years and parents of girls aged 13 to 17 years compose the foundation. In this study the interviews were analysed with qualitative latent content analysis, all together 21 interviews. The main result was that in both groups it was generally thought that neither future sexual habits nor participation in cervical cancer screening would be considerably affected. The young women however had deficient knowledge about what they were vaccinated against and the purpose of cervical cancer screening. The parents had better understanding. Accurate information about HPV, the HPV vaccine and cervical cancer screening in connection with vaccination is important for the outcome of future sexual habits and participation in cervical cancer screening.
