HPV programme extended

The Department of Health has announced (PDF) that the human papillomavirus vaccination programme is to be extended to include young women aged 17-18.

The decision to use Cervarix® has been criticised but this announcement does start to explain why the programme is using an apparently inferior vaccine.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of the extension to the vaccination programme.
