HPV vaccination programme

Documents relating to the universal human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination programme for girls and boys.

HPV is a very common sexually transmitted infection which usually causes no symptoms and goes away by itself but some types can cause genital warts or cancer.

The national HPV vaccination programme is being extended to eligible boys from 1 September 2019.

More information on HPV and genital warts is available on NHS.UK and on GOV.UK.
