When should my teenager have the HPV vaccine?
Your teenager should receive two doses of the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine between the ages of 9-14 years.
The vaccine is generally given to students in Year 7 or 8 at school, with at least 6-12 months between each dose. In some cases, teenagers may require three doses of the HPV vaccine.
For further information regarding vaccination and prevention of HPV, speak with your healthcare practitioner.
