All 12 to 13 year old girls (school year 8) are routinely offered the vaccine with the full course of three doses given during the school year.
Girls and young women who were born between 1 September 1990 and August 1995 are still eligible to receive the HPV vaccination. Ths is due to the catch-up campaign being extended until 31 August 2011. Young women who have not been invited, or have not completed the 3 dose course, are encouraged to contact their GP immediately.
