Concerns are being raised about young girls of 12 to 13 years old getting diagnosed with human papilloma virus (HPV). This is the reason that public health experts have advised that parents should understand the risk, which their daughters have been facing and get them vaccinated.
In order to get vaccination against HPV, it is necessary that girls should have permission of their parents, as only then doctors can provide vaccination. Experts said that in order to take off the risk, girls are suggested to get vaccinated at an early age.
The vaccination is vital for girls, as it saves them from cervical cancer. Since 2008, the vaccination has become compulsory for young girls. The vaccination consists of three doses, which is to be provided after the gap of six months.
"This vaccine can ensure that these girls will be fully protected against one of the main causes of cervical cancer from the day they become sexually active", said Felicity Owen, who is the Director of Public Health for Cornwall, at the time when she was explaining the importance of the vaccine for girls.
As otherwise, girls remain at risk of getting diagnosed with the virus, which further makes them vulnerable to the cancer.
