In July 2018 the government announced that adolescent boys aged between 12 and 13 will be offered the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine to protect them from HPV-related cancers .
Updated evidence from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) Recommends that the existing HPV vaccination programme for girls, should be extended to boys as well.
The vaccine not only protects men from HPV-related diseases – such as oral, throat and anal cancer – but also helps reduce the overall number of cervical cancers in women, though a process known as ‘herd immunity’.
Jenhams Clinic has the HPV vaccine available for boys and men who may have missed the opportunity with the NHS to be protected. Please call us for further details.
