New Article On Hpv And Head/neck Cancer

3 posts in this topic

In Australia, teenage girls are already getting vaccinated as a matter of routine. Everyone should have a HPV and a Hep B shot - it'll massively reduce cancers of the liver, cervix and throat/head/neck cancers. HPV is incredibly simple to eradicate. Can't believe the NHS is not taking a vaccination program into schools. Stingy and short-termist, as usual. The long term savings would be HUGE.

Well there are certainly schools programmes in some places, http://www.sussexcommunity.nhs.uk/services/servicedetails.htm?directoryID=16312 not sure how widespread though. All girls can get it free, but how many are made aware of it I don't know.
