Cancer jab for more girls

17th March 2009

The Welsh government is extending its campaign to offer cervical cancer vaccinations to schoolgirls and young women in Wales.

The government plans to spend £9 million to ensure 40,000 extra women are offered the chance to be immunised.

Health Minister Edwina Hart said: "HPV vaccination is a very significant public health development and I would like Wales to press ahead by undertaking the catch-up campaign more quickly than planned."
