HPV Vaccination Information
HPV Immunisations - Year 8
The HPV vaccine has been offered to all school year 8 girls for over ten years. With effect from September 2019 the vaccine is now being offered to year 8 boys. The evidence shows that the HPV vaccine helps to protect both boys and girls from HPV related cancers. To get the best protection, it is important that your son/daughter receive both doses, scheduled 6 to 12 months apart. Please discuss this with your son/daughter, then complete the electronic consent form.
In the absence of a parent/guardian completing a consent form, your son/daughter may be given the option of vaccination if they wish to do so under the Gillick competence guidance. This will only be done if the nurse is confident that the child understands all the information given, and then they can consent for the vaccination themselves. Please see the useful links and FAQs for more information of the HPV vaccination.
If you have any queries or require further information, please contact the Immunisation Team on 03333 583 397.
