Video explaining the importance of HPV immunisation in year 8 girls and boys.
HPV is part of the national immunisation schedule in New Zealand. For children aged 9 to 14 years, the HPV vaccine is given as 2 doses, 6 months apart. This age group develops a stronger immune response than those vaccinated when they are older. Children aged 15 years and older will need 3 doses of the vaccine, spaced over 6 months.
