HPV Vaccine for all Grade 4 Girls

Subject: Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine information sheets and consent forms

1. The introduction of the Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine is a major public health milestone for South Africa. The HPV vaccination programme aims to protect girls against cancer of the cervix (CaCx). Every year, over 5 743 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and a further 3 027 die from related complications. The availability of an effective vaccine against the most prevalent high risk types of HPV has made it possible to protect women against cervical cancer, which is currently the most common cancer among women in South Africa. 

2. The HPV vaccine should be given before becoming sexually active or exposed to the HPV infection. Therefore, it is recommended for use in girls aged 9 to 15.
