Human Papillomavirus

The HPV programme

Following a review of the strenghting evidence on the efficacy of HPV vaccination preventing a number of non-cervival cancers that affect men as well as woman in June 2018 the JCVI recomended that existing HPV vaccination programme for girls should be extended to include boys.

In order to further support the HPV immunisation programme,2019-20 NHS Education for Scotland in partnership with Health Protection Scotland has developed resources for registered healthcare practitioners. These can be found below and include training slides (and accompanying notes) and an ‘Information sheet’ resource.

Please note:  These educational resources continue to be updated as required to support this programme but do not replace the clinical judgement of practitioners. Practitioners should refer to the Public Health England Green Book Chapter when administering the vaccine.
