HPV Immunisation Uptake Statistics

Following a recommendation from the National Immunisation Advisory Committee, that human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine should be given to 12 year old girls, a routine Health Service Executive (HSE) school HPV vaccination programme began in May 2010 for girls in the first year of second level school and age equivalent in non second level schools (see reports for cohort details). The aim of the programme is to protect girls from their future risk of developing cervical cancer.
