Year 8 pupils were due to receive their HPV Vaccine on the 20th January, but this has been postponed. A new date will be circulated as soon as it is made available to our Health Team.

HPV is the name given to a very common group of viruses.

The 1st dose of the HPV vaccine is routinely offered to girls and boys aged 12 and 13 in school Year 8. The 2nd dose is offered 6 to 24 months after the 1st dose.
