As of the 1st of January 2017, everyone will be entitled to have this vaccine, however you must have the first dose before you turn 27 to be able to have it for free.
The HPV vaccine is designed to protect you from HPV infection and HPV related cancers, such as cervical, anal, genital and some throat and mouth cancers. HPV is a common virus and is transmitted through intimate contact. Four out of five people will become infected with HPV at some time of their lives. While most get better on their own without any symptoms, some don’t and this can lead to cancer.
To get the best protection, you will need a course of three vaccines given over six months.
International students can have the vaccine, but they will need to pay for it. In 2017, it will be $170 per vaccine, + cost of consultation.
Please make an appointment with one of our nurses for this very important immunisation.Further reading: http://www.immune.org.nz/sites/default/files/resources/ProgrammeHpvQA20161121V01Final.pdf
