In brief: Parenting
I recommend it to all patents prior to age of intercourse.
Parents do not need permission to vaccinate minors. It is your oblgation to protect the children.

In brief: Show him pictures!
I often find that, in practice, some adolescent males need a little nudging to get the hpv vaccine.
One of the things that has worked for me is to show my patients pictures of the diseases that I am trying to vaccinate and protect them against. A picture can be worth a thousand words. Pictures of genital warts and cancers caused by hpv might convince.
