The national HPV vaccination programme for MSM began on 1 April 2018.
The purpose of the HPV for MSM programme is to opportunistically offer the vaccine to MSM up to and including 45 years of age through Specialist Sexual Health Services (SSHS) and/or HIV clinics. At present, the vaccine is not available outside of SSHS and HIV clinics. PHE therefore encourages patients to continue attending SSHS and HIV clinics where they normally receive care.
To support healthcare professionals a slide set describing the current epidemiology of HPV, evidence based information and guidance on the administration of the vaccine has been developed.
