Transcript of Copy of HPV Vaccine

Discuss the background and discovery of the HPV vaccine
Brief overview of the molecular biology
The mechanism by which the HPV vaccine works?
Who is vaccinated and when?
Contraindications for the HPV vaccination
Rigoni and Stern 1842
Death certifcates - Increase in death by cervical carcinoma in married women and prostitutes
Small number of deaths in nuns and virgins
Conclusions - Link between sexual contact and Cervical carcinoma
Vaccination Programme
Began in 2008
Teenage girls 12-13
Three year catch up campaign offered to older girls
Why 11-12 year olds?
Many are not sexually active
Easy to deliver to patients through secondary schools
Three injections over six months
HPV Vaccination

Routine cervical screening must continue as the vaccines do not cover all strains of the virus.

Common AMK question

Attempted to gain understanding into its clinical application
