Health experts are urging parents to get their daughters vaccinated against HPV so that they could be prevented from wide spreading cervical cancer. Before GPs allow girls for the vaccination they need permission from the parents. Therefore, parents have been requested to take a step forward to help prevent cervical cancer that has already taken toll over the life of thousands of girls.
The vaccination is administered to girls at a tender age so that cervical cancer causing virus, HPV or the human papilloma virus could be prevented. The HPV is affects a woman through sexual intercourse. The government has been running anti HPV program since 2008. Under the program girls above the age group of 12 to 13 are vaccinated.
Under the program, the girls are injected with three injections with an interval of six months. Parents are required to take appointment with GPs for getting their daughters vaccinated. However, it has been found that only 49% of the girls are being vaccinated against HPV.
Those who have missed their vaccination can still contact GPs. Parents have been advised to take serious note of the danger of their daughter of being affected with cervical cancer in future and get them vaccinated at present.
