Fresh round of HPV vaccination plans

5th February 2010

Government figures have shown a disappointing number of women have received a full three doses of the HPV vaccine under a catch-up programmes.

The Department of Health and Health Protection Agency’s evaluation published this month showed under a third of women aged 17 to 18 years had completed their third dose of the vaccine. The report recommends that PCTs should plan for an additional round of vaccinations to ensure that girls given only one or two doses under the catch-up campaign could complete the course.
