HPV jab for boys raises hope of eradicating cervical cancer

Boys aged 12 and 13 will be provided the vaccine in secondary schools from the beginning of the next school term.

Human papillomavirus comes in more than 100 different strains and is normally harmless, but can cause cancer of the cervix, vagina, penis, anus, head and neck.

A Scottish Government spokesperson said: "The HPV vaccination programme for adolescent boys will begin in the new academic year, 2019-20".

There are two injections, with the second needed between six and 24 months after the first. In cervical cancers, HPV is estimated to be responsible for over 99% of all cases.

Modelling produced by the University of Warwick estimates that by 2058 in the United Kingdom the HPV vaccine now being used may have prevented up to 64,138 HPV-related cervical cancers and 49,649 other HPV-related cancers.

Some 100,000 cases of cancer could be prevented in Britain in the next 40 years by a vaccine against the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cancers of the cervix, mouth, anus and genitals, United Kingdom health officials said on Tuesday.

"We now know HPV can be the cause of several other cancers as well as cervical and getting eligible people vaccinated will save lives in years to come".

Similarly, diagnoses of genital warts have declined by 90% in 15 to 17-year-old girls and by 70% in 15 to 17-year-old boys. Another argument is that some believe the primary objective in reducing HPV is to simply vaccinate as many young girls as possible, as circulation rates of the virus associated with vaccinating females will ultimately lead to a reduction in HPV diseases in men.

More than 3,000 women in the United Kingdom are newly diagnosed with cervical cancer each year in the United Kingdom and the disease kills over 850 women annually.

And if they miss out on the vaccination, parents should talk to the school nurse or immunisation team to ensure they get the jab at a later date.

Extensive research of the vaccine by leading health bodies worldwide shows that it offers protection for at least a decade, although experts say it could last for much longer and may even be lifelong, according to Public Health England.

"I encourage all parents of eligible boys and girls to make sure they take up the offer for this potentially life-saving vaccine".

He said 'We're rolling out the highly effective HPV vaccine to boys across the country to protect more girls from cervical cancer.' Twitter users were quick to comment that Hancock has failed to address the fact that the jab will also save men from developing some types of cancer, and so it's beneficial for both sexes, instead of just girls.

More than 3,000 women in the United Kingdom are newly diagnosed with cervical cancer each year in the United Kingdom and the disease kills over 850 women annually. The HPV vaccination program was initially launched for girls.

'We are pleased that the HPV vaccine will be given to Year 8 boys, as well as girls, from September - this is something the RCGP has long-called for.

The HPV vaccine works best if boys and girls get it before they become sexually active. Around 40 types of HPV infection can affect the genital area.

"Following the success of the vaccination programme for girls, it is only right that boys are now afforded the same protection".
