Kas peaksite oma last vaktsineerima inimese papilloomiviiruse (HPV) vastu?


A simple cancer vaccine? We would like it to be like that for everyone! Against that of the cervix and anus, it is possible to be vaccinated, or to vaccinate your child, with Gardasil 9 or Cervarix. And these are now recommended and reimbursed both for young boys and girls.

Why vaccinate both women and men against human papillomaviruses?

Since 2006, adolescent girls and boys havea remedy to prevent cervical cancer and other cancers: the HPV (Human papilloma virus) vaccine. This protects against papillomaviruses, responsible for cancers of the cervix, but also of the anus, penis, tongue or throat.

The Gardasil® vaccine appeared in France in November 2006. It protects against four types of papillomavirus (6, 11, 16 and 18) responsible for precancerous lesions, cancerous and genital warts.

Since October 2007, you can also have Cervarix® administered. He fights only papillomavirus infections of type 16 and 18.

It is relevant to vaccinate both girls and boys against human papillomaviruses since the latter are not only responsible for cervical cancer but also cancers of the anus, penis, tongue or throat. In addition, men are less often symptomatic but are the ones who transmit these viruses the most. Whether a man has sex with women or / and men, it is therefore prudent that he gets vaccinated.

At what age to get vaccinated against papillomavirus?

In France, the Haute Autorité de Santé recommends quadrivalent vaccination (Gardasil®) for adolescents 11i ja 14i vahel. Catching up is possible later, on average until the age of 26, knowing that vaccination is less effective after the start of sexual activity.
