Boys Will Be Offered HPV Vaccine in Effort to Cut Cancer Rates

Mandy Parker was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2015

One user replied to his tweet by saying 'just as importantly, it protects the boys from penile, anal, and oral cancers, ' whilst another commented 'great vaccination program but awful tweet! This is about five per cent of all cancers worldwide. They're spread during sexual activity.

The girls' programme has been very successful so far and it's already seen an impact in men as well as woman. All the boys in the country will be given vaccinations after the summer.

And it will also protect them from a range of other forms of the disease, including some cancers of the head and neck, and penile, anal and genital cancers.

Last year, the BMA put forward a case to a House of Commons debate for HPV vaccination for boys.

Boys in the United Kingdom aged 12 and 13 will be given the HPV jab from September in a bid to wipe out cervical cancer, the government has announced. "We encourage parents of eligible boys and girls to take up the offer and protect future generations against these preventable diseases with the HPV vaccine". However, most campaigns focus on girls, since the main target is eradicating cervical cancer. In the United Kingdom, boys aged 12 and 13 will be offered the vaccine in secondary schools as of the next term.

But boys aged 12 and 13 will also be eligible from September.

The vaccinations will be given to the young boys in secondary schools from the first day of the new school term. The timing and arrangements in the distribution of vaccines will vary slightly in different nations. I think it is so important for women and boys to take up the HPV vaccine.

Toddler falls through grandfather’s arms, drops to her death on cruise ship
In a statement sent to news.com.au, a spokesperson for Royal Caribbean said they were "deeply saddened" by the tragic incident. Still, "every cruise ship has a safety plan", and "they are required to give a safety brief", he said.

Boys will receive their first jab in Year Eight, with the second dose between six and 24 months after.

The expansion of the free service, introduced for girls in 2008, has led to estimates that the vaccination programme will prevent over 64,000 cervical cancers and almost 50,000 non-cervical cancers by 2058.

"We'd encourage all parents of eligible children to get their child vaccinated when it is offered, and if they miss the round for any reason that they let their school nurse know, so that they can be invited to a "catch-up" clinic".

"It's important not to delay the vaccination, as it may be less effective as adolescents get older".

Meanwhile, Dr. David Elliman, immunization expert for the Royal College of Pediatrics and Child Health, welcomed the move by the health officials to get all the young boys get vaccinated against HPV. In the United States, high-risk HPV infections cause about 3% of all cancers in women and 2% in men, according to the National Cancer Institute. "The latter is now increasing in incidence, but this trend will be turned around as the vaccination program takes effect in the future", BBC quoted him.

"The success of the HPV vaccine programme for girls is clear and by extending it to boys we will go a step further to help us prevent more cases of HPV-related cancer every year", said Public Health Minister Seema Kennedy.

Human papillomavirus, or HPV, might hide in the crevices of the tonsils until they cause head and neck cancer, even in people who seem otherwise healthy.
