HPV vaccination in boys

Pressure from various sources including ENT-UK, is currently being placed on the Goverment to fund HPV vaccination in boys.

The vaccination helps reduce the risk of head and neck cancer in later life. It is already given to girls to reduce the chance of cervical cancer and has just been licensed for administration to men who have sex with men.

In other countries the vaccination is already given to boys.

So come on Gov.UK, wise up and start to recognise this important public health issue!
