Year 9 HPV vaccination Monday 17th January 2022

Posted on: 12th Jan 2022

Dear Parent/Guardian

Your child is due their vaccination to protect against Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).  This is offered in year 8 as part of the national immunisation programme and is free on the NHS, (delayed due to COVID).

This vaccine requires two doses; the second dose is given 6 - 24 months after the first.  If your child is 15-17 years old, or immunosuppressed regardless of age when they receive the first dose they will require 3 doses.  The team will advise you of the dates the 3 doses are required.

More information regarding these vaccinations can be accessed through the links below, please ensure that you read the information contained in the links below prior to giving consent for your child’s immunisations. You must have parental responsibility or delegated authority for immunisations to consent for the vaccinations.
