Project Description

HPV vaccine

The HPV (Human Papillomavirus) vaccination helps protect those
aged over 9 years old from cancers such as cervical, mouth,
throat and genital.

HPV can be found in 99% of all cervical cancers. It can be caught
through any sexual contact with another person who is already infected.

HPV vaccination does not protect against other infections spread
during sex, such as chlamydia, and it will not stop girls getting
pregnant, so it’s still very important to practise safe sex.

Signs & Symptoms

HPV typically does not cause any symptoms and most people will not
be aware they are infected.

It can cause abnormal tissue growth which can then lead to cancer.

Vaccine course

Two to three doses of the vaccine dependent on your age are required
in order to acquire protection.

Females can have the vaccine whilst menstruating.
Males are also able to receive the vaccine.
