The HPV vaccine is available from your doctor. To help ensure early protection, schools will be scheduling free immunisations for children at Intermediate School so no doctors visits are needed.
The vaccine is administered via an injection, in the arm.
- For people aged 14 and under, only 2 doses are required, as research has shown that the response to the vaccine is greater in younger people. These doses are given about 6 months apart.
- For people aged 15 and over, 3 doses are required over a 6 month period. All 3 doses are required to ensure maximum protection.
