Empowering Girls and Women: Understanding the Importance of HPV Vaccination

Cervical cancer is one of the most common and potentially deadly cancers in women, but it is also highly preventable. The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine is a powerful tool in this prevention.  In India, three vaccines are commonly used: Gardasil, Cervarix and Cervavac by Serum Institute of India. These vaccines are highly effective in preventing HPV infections and reducing the risk of cervical cancer.They are available in the as a Quadrivalent human papilloma virus recombinant vaccine (Gardasil, Cervarix and Cervavac) and also as HPV 9 valent recombinanant ( Gardasil 9)

HPV Vaccination in Girls:

  1. Recommended Age Group: HPV vaccination is typically recommended for girls between the ages of 9 and 14. This age range is chosen because the vaccine is most effective when administered before exposure to the virus through sexual activity.
  2. Number of Doses: The HPV vaccination regimen consists of two vaccines for girls. The initial dose is followed by a second dose  2 months after the first dose. This two-dose schedule is suitable for girls aged 9 to 14.
  3. Advantages: HPV vaccination offers several benefits, primarily by protecting girls from the strains of the virus that can lead to cervical cancer. It's a critical step in preventing this deadly disease and also reduces the risk of other HPV-related cancers.

HPV Vaccination for Young adolescent girls and Women (Ages 14 to 45):

  1. Recommended Age Group: HPV vaccination is also beneficial for young adolescent girls and women aged 14 to 45. While it is most effective when administered at a younger age, women in this age group can still benefit from vaccination.
  2. Number of Doses: For women aged 14 to 45, the HPV vaccination schedule consists of three doses. The second dose is given approximately 1 to 2 months after the first dose, and the third dose is administered 6 months after the first dose.

Role of HPV Vaccination in Boys:

While HPV vaccination is primarily associated with girls, it plays a crucial role in boys' health as well:

  1. Preventing Transmission: Boys who receive the vaccine not only protect themselves but also reduce the transmission of HPV to their partners. This is particularly important because some HPV strains can cause cancers in both males and females.
  2. Protection against HPV-related Diseases: Boys are at risk of HPV-related cancers too, including anal, penile, and oropharyngeal cancers. Vaccination provides protection against these diseases as well.
