Human papilloma Virus Vacine (HPVV) Flag off


Nigeria has incorporated the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine into its regular immunization schedule, with a specific focus on reaching 7.7 million girls aged 9 to 14. The state of Bayelsa is set to launch this campaign on November 19, 2023, aiming to provide preventive measures against cervical cancer. This proactive initiative underscores Nigeria's commitment to public health by addressing the risk factors associated with HPV and ultimately reducing the incidence of cervical cancer. It is crucial to promote awareness and encourage parents and guardians to avail their eligible children of this important vaccination opportunity.
