‘Beating Cervical Cancer’ – the Human Papilloma Virus Vaccine
The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine is available to all female students in year 8 and is free on the NHS. The first dose will be given in year 8 and the second, usually one year later, in year 9.
By having this vaccination, your child will be protected against the commonest causes of cervical cancer. The vaccine also offers protection from the two types of HPV that cause the majority of genital warts. In order to get the best protection, it is essential that your child receives both vaccinations.
