Cancer Prevention is Better Than Cure

What is Cervical Vaccination

  • Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that affects the cervix, the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. It is a significant global health concern, and HPV infection is a major risk factor for its development. HPV is a common sexually transmitted infection, and certain high-risk strains of the virus, particularly types 16 and 18, are responsible for the majority of cervical cancer cases.
  • Cervical cancer vaccination is typically recommended for preteen girls and boys between the ages of 11 and 12, although it can be administered as early as nine years old. The vaccines are most effective when given before individuals become sexually active and potentially exposed to HPV. However, vaccination is also beneficial for teenagers and young adults who did not receive it earlier.

  • Cervical cancer vaccination usually involves a series of injections given over a period of time. The exact dosing schedule may vary based on the specific vaccine and country or region. It’s important to note that the vaccine does not provide complete protection against all types of HPV, so it is still crucial for vaccinated individuals to undergo regular cervical cancer screenings, such as Pap smears, as recommended by healthcare professionals.
