There are over 100 varieties of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and 4 out of 5 people will come into contact with at least one type of the HPV virus at some point in their lives. Most forms of the HPV infection are harmless, however some can cause genital warts and abnormal cells that are linked to cervical cancer and other cancers in men and women.

What is the HPV vaccine?

The HPV vaccination (Gardasil 9) protects against 9 types of HPV, including 2 types that can cause more than 70% of cervical cancers in the UK and 2 types of the virus that cause 90% of genital warts.

Gardasil 9 is given as an injection in the upper arm. The number of doses you need depends on your age. Children aged from 12 up to and including 14 years of age at the time of the first injection require two doses. The second dose is administered six months after the first.

Patients aged 15 years of age and older at the time of the first injection require three doses. The second dose is administered two months after the first dose. The third dose is administered at least four months after the second dose. All three doses must be given within the course of one year.

From £175 per dose
