HPV jab to prevent cervical cancer

There is now a jab, for girls and women, that provides protection against two strains of human papillomavirus (HPV) that is responsible for two of the most common types of cervical cancer.

If you are female and between 12-15 years old, your parent or guardian signs the consent form and it is returned to your school, you will be given a HPV jab by a school nurse at your school. If you are 16 years or older you do not need parental consent to get the HPV jab.

So that you get the right protection you will get three jabs over six months. If are not at school and you want to have a HPV jab please talk to your GP.
