HPV Vaccination - Protection against Cervical Cancer
Since 2008, the UK has incorporated HPV vaccination into the schedule for girls aged 12 to 13, and boys of the same age, since September 2019. The vast majority of cervical cancers are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV types 16 and 18) and the introduction of the vaccine has led to a significant fall in the incidence of cervical cancer diagnosis amongst people who have completed the full HPV vaccination programme.
Tetanus & Polio
Protection against tetanus and polio should be kept up to date. A full primary course with a booster at 15 years of age should be followed by at least two boosters at 10 year intervals to protect throughout life.
Annual protection against the Influenza (Flu) virus is offered to all patients aged 65 and over as well as younger patients with certain chronic diseases such as diabetes, coronary heart disease or chronic respiratory disease.
