HPV for boys 2019/20

In September 2019 the HPV was offered to boys in S1, in addition to girls, as part of the routine school based programme.

This follows the Scottish Government announcement in July 2018 to include HPV vaccination of boys in the national vaccination programme based on the advice of the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).  Please see the JCVI statement setting out the recommendation to vaccinate boys against HPV. 

The CMO letter 2019 is available on the link
