Is the HPV vaccine just for girls?

From September 2019, all 12 and 13 year-olds in school year 8 will be offered the HPV vaccine in England. See here for further information:

Is there a catch-up plan for older boys who missed out on the HPV vaccine?

At present, there are no plans to catch up boys in older year groups.

NHS UK states that, ‘The longstanding HPV vaccination programme in girls indirectly protects boys against cancers and genital warts linked to infection with HPV because girls will not pass HPV on to them. This is called herd immunity.’

I consented online but my child was absent/unable to be vaccinated when your team came to school. How do I catch them up?

The online consent form you completed will be retained by the childhood immunisation team and we will catch your child up the next time we go into school. If anything changes with regards to your child’s health in the meantime, please contact the Childhood Immunisation Service so that we have up-to-date health information for your child.

My child will not cope with being vaccinated in school. Can I take them to my GP instead?

For children who are particularly anxious about having an injection, the Childhood Immunisation Service runs clinics which can be attended with a parent or carer. This means that more time can be spent with each child and it may reduce the anxiety/pressure that they may feel at school. Clinic appointments can be booked by contacting the Childhood Immunisation Team.

Your GP surgery may be able to give missed vaccinations that are out of schedule.
