Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Child Immunisation service

Vaccinations for Children in Year 8 (those aged 12-13 years old)

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)

Due to the success of the HPV vaccination in significantly reducing HPV related cancers the vaccine will now be offered to boys as well as girls. All young people in year 8 are offered the vaccination as a course of 2 injections. The second injection will be given 6 to 12 months after the first. This is part of the NHS childhood immunisation programme. You can find out more about the NHS HPV vaccination here. You can find out more about teenage immunisations here.

Information about the vaccinations will be added to your child’s health record, including GP records and those held by the NHS.

If you do not want your child to receive the vaccination it is important to complete the refusal section on the form.
