HPV Vaccination Programme

HPV completing dose (booster) vaccination programme.

Purpose and outline

HPV vaccine is routinely provided by schools. However, some students may miss the schools programme and present to their GP practice for vaccination. Vaccination is to be provided on request if the patient has missed the schools provision.

From April 2022, those aged 15+ who start HPV vaccination course should receive two doses with a 6-month interval. This is a change from a 3-dose schedule which was previously recommended for this age group. Individuals who start the NHS HPV Vaccination programme prior to April 2022 should continue the planned 3 dose schedule. Those who commenced prior to April 2022 whose schedule is interrupted/delayed such that they had an interval of 6 months or more between their first and second dose only need a 2-dose schedule (do not require a 3rd dose).

The Green Book advises that a 3-dose, schedule should be offered to individuals who are known to be HIV infected, including those on antiretroviral therapy, or who are known to be immunocompromised at the time of vaccination.

How this service is commissioned and provided

This service is provided as part of the GMS/PMS contract provision.
