Sth Canterbury Gardasil® school programme

Wednesday, 31 October 2012

South Canterbury will be commencing a school-based Gardasil® programme for 12 year old girls from term one 2013.

The first dose of the National Immunisation Schedule vaccine is currently available through school and doses two and three available through general practice. A number of girls who started their Gardasil® immunisation course have not completed doses two and three with their GP or declined to complete the immunisation course but may still intend to complete the course. Delay in receiving their immunisations leaves them at risk of infection with human papillomavirus.
