HPV CANCERS

 

HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccination is available on the NHS in schools for all children in year 8/S1 as part of the National Immunisation Programme (NIP)

 

HPV cancers develop when the immune system can’t clear up infections caused by types of high-risk human papillomaviruses.

 
 

Those HPV infections may cause changes in cells that increase the risk of certain cancers and pre-cancerous lesions in the future, like cervical cancer and anal cancer.

Vaccination can help reduce the risk of your son or daughter developing certain HPV cancers in the future by protecting them against types of high-risk human papillomaviruses.

HPV vaccination also helps reduce the spread of types of human papillomavirus from one person to another during close skin-to-skin contact.

 

The long-term safety profile of HPV vaccines has been well studied in millions of people worldwide.

 

HPV vaccines are closely monitored to ensure they continue to be suitable for use.
