Cervical Cancer – HPV Vaccination
If any girl from age 12 up to their 18th birthday has missed the HPV vaccination at school we can offer it here at the Cheam GP Centre. The vaccination is a course of two vaccines which are 6 months apart, please ask reception for more information.
Older girls are no longer eligible for vaccination from the NHS and should contact a private travel clinic or private GP if they require the HPV vaccination.
Many childhood diseases have been virtually eradicated in the UK due to the availability of vaccinations. It is very important that all children are fully immunised.
