The Department of Health will be supplying Gardasil® for the national Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination programme from September 2012 for girls in school year 8 (aged 12 to 13 years) and for all girls up to the age of 18 who have not been previously vaccinated against HPV.

Sanofi Pasteur MSD, the manufacturer of Gardasil®, is committed to providing information and support to School Nurses to ensure that they are ready to switch to using Gardasil® whilst continuing to run effective HPV vaccination clinics within their schools. We are therefore writing to all School Nurses in advance of the new arrangements coming into force to inform you of the resources available to you from Sanofi Pasteur MSD.
