Next week at Hawkesdale P12 College, all Year 7 girls will be offered the opportunity to receive a vaccination against cervcial cancer. This free vaccine protects girls from the two HPV types which cause 70% of cervical cancers and the two HPV types which cause 90% of genital warts. More information about HPV and the vaccine is available at a website launched by Cancer Council Australia at www.cervicalcancervaccine.org.au.
