*Assumes cost of vaccination series is US $360, duration of protection is lifelong, and coverage rate of 50% among age 15- to 24-y-olds. HPV, human papillomavirus; QALY, quality-adjusted life years.
†Compared with the preceding nondominated strategy. Strategy A is dominated if there is another strategy, B, that is more effective and less costly than strategy A. A strategy is weakly dominated if there is another more effective program that has a incremental cost-effectiveness ratio.
