Universal HPV Vaccination Discussed In House Of Lords

House Of Lords

A question was raised by Baroness Altmann in the House of Lords today about universal HPV vaccination and was discussed by peers. You can view a video of the discussion here.

We hope that as support for universal HPV vaccination continues to gather momentum the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) will soon make their decision on whether to offer it to boys as well as girls.

As their interim decision last year was to not offer vaccination to boys we are preparing to bring a judicial review in the event that this is also their final decision. We are crowdfunding to cover our potential costs at the moment – you can read our case page and pledge your help here.
