Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Immunization Program
What is Human Papillomavirus (HPV)?
- The HPV vaccine protects against certain cancers and genital warts caused by the Human Papillomavirus.
- The HPV vaccine is voluntary but strongly recommended by Peel Public Health.
- Students will be given two or three doses of the vaccine throughout the school year at school-based clinics.
- If the first dose is given before age 14, only 2 doses are needed. If the first dose is given after age 14, 3 doses are needed.
- Boys and girls who were unable to begin or complete the HPV vaccine series in Grade 7 in the 2016-2017 school year will be offered the vaccine in school again in grade 8. These students remain eligible for the vaccine until they finish grade 12.
