From September 2019, all 12 and 13 year olds in school Year 8 will be offered on the NHS the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine.

It also helps protect against genital warts.
In England, girls and boys aged 12 to 13 years will be routinely offered the first HPV vaccination when they're in school Year 8.
The second dose is normally offered 6 to 12 months after the first (in school Year 8 or Year 9).
It's important to have both doses to be protected.
You must complete one online consent form for each young person.
It is important everyone has a completed form which states if you would like them to receive their first and second dose of the HPV vaccination or not.
Before completing the consent form you will require a code for your child’s school.
Step 1: Insert your email address and the school code.
Step 2: Click the green Confirm School button and check the school name is correct.
Step 3: Please read and tick the data processing statement.
