From September 2019, all 12- and 13-year-olds in school Year 8 will be offered on the NHS the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine.

It helps protect against cancers caused by HPV, including:

In England, girls and boys aged 12 to 13 years will be routinely offered the first HPV vaccination when they're in school Year 8. The second dose is normally offered 6 to 12 months after the first (in school Year 8 or Year 9). It's important to have both doses to be protected.

Those who missed their HPV vaccination in school Year 8 can continue to have the vaccine up to their 25th birthday.

Posters have been added to download for waiting rooms, schools etc to advertise the HPP vaccination for children.
