HPV vaccination programme: changes from 1st September 2023

Posted by: Mark - Posted on:

We are pleased to announce that from 1 September 2023, the HPV vaccine programme will change from a 2 dose to a one dose HPV vaccine.

This is because the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has advised that a one dose HPV vaccine schedule has shown to be just as effective as 2 doses at providing protection from HPV infection

Students who started their HPV vaccination schedule and have already received one dose of the vaccine will be considered fully vaccinated – please do not call to book an appointment for a 2nd dose.

Those who have not yet received any HPV vaccinations will be eligible to receive one dose of the HPV vaccine.
