WILL BRITISH BOYS RECEIVE THE HPV VACCINATION?

Wednesday 18th July should be the day that the JCVI, (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation) recommend whether or not British boys should receive the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) vaccination.   

Around 400,000 boys unvaccinated every year, leaves millions at risk of developing HPV related cancers, including mouth cancer.

The highly anticipated decision to offer boys the vaccination against HPV will be a welcome one, after many months of campaign alongside our colleagues at HPV Action.  Vaccinating boys as well as girls will be an absolute life saver.
