HPV, or Human Papilloma Virus, is a virus that affects many people in the UK. High-risk types of HPV can be found in more than 99% of cervical cancers, and it can be passed from one person to another through skin-to-skin contact. There are more than 100 different types of HPV associated with various diseases, but only certain types are associated with cervical cancer.
HPV can affect more than 80% of people in their lifetime, and it is estimated that over 3 million people have the virus in the UK.
Who can have the HPV vaccine?
The NHS offers immunisation against HPV as part of the NHS childhood vaccination programme to children aged 12 and 13 in school Year 8. The 2nd dose is offered 6 to 12 months after the 1st dose. If you miss either of your HPV vaccine doses, speak to your school immunisation team or GP surgery and make an appointment to have the missed dose as soon as possible.
At Midway Pharmacy, our HPV vaccination service is suitable for males and females between the ages of 9 and 45. You can have the vaccine as long as you:
Haven't already had the full course of the HPV vaccine
Haven't had an allergic reaction to a vaccine before
Haven't had a temperature in the 24 hours leading up to the appointment

Frequently asked questions
How long does the HPV vaccine protect for?
The vaccine protects against HPV for at least ten years, but experts expect it to last longer. Since the HPV vaccine doesn't protect against all forms of HPV that might cause cervical cancer, all women who receive it must also have regular cervical screening once they reach the age of 25.
How can I protect myself against HPV?
Condoms lower HPV risk. However, this won't fully protect you, as the virus can live on skin around the genitals that aren’tisn't covered by a condom.
HPV vaccines provide the best protection. The vaccine permanently protects most HPV types.
Is the HPV vaccine safe?
HPV vaccines are safe and effective. HPV vaccine side effects like arm soreness are modest and short-lived. Vaccines undergo thorough clinical testing before being licenced, and experts continue to evaluate their safety after approval.
Can boys have the HPV vaccine?
HPV vaccinations were initially provided only to girls. However, boys are now recommended to get the HPV vaccine to prevent warts and HPV-related malignancies. Vaccinating boys reduce HPV transmission.
Can adults have the HPV vaccine?
Adults can get HPV vaccines. Vaccination is available up to the age of 45. Adults over this age may have previously contracted and eliminated the most prevalent kinds of HPV, making an HPV vaccine less beneficial.
I missed the vaccine in Year 8 at school. Can I still get it for free?
If you're eligible and miss the HPV vaccine offered in Year 8 at school, it's available for free on the NHS up until your 25th birthday for:
girls born after 1 September 1991
boys born after 1 September 2006
What are the symptoms of HPV?
HPV does not usually cause any symptoms. Most people who have it do not realise it and do not have any problems.
But sometimes, the virus can cause painless growths or lumps around your vagina, penis or anus (genital warts).
How is HPV spread?
Many types of HPV affect the mouth, throat or genital area. They're easy to catch. You do not need to have penetrative sex.
You can get HPV from:
any skin-to-skin contact of the genital area
vaginal, anal or oral sex
sharing sex toys
You do not have to have sexual contact with many people to get HPV. You can get HPV the first time you have sex.
How do you treat HPV infections?
There's no treatment for HPV. Most HPV infections do not cause any problems and are cleared by your body within two years.
Treatment is needed if HPV causes problems like genital warts or changes to cells in the cervix.
