Leaflet - What to expect after vaccination

 

HPV Vaccination

This vaccine protects against the two types of the virus that cause most (over 70%) of the cases of cervical cancer.  It does not protect against all of the other types of HPV, so cervical screening (smear tests) still needs to be carried out in the future.

 

Tetanus

We recommend a tetanus booster every 10 years.

 

Influenza

Vaccine is available every year from October. We encourage older patients, particularly those over 65 years, pregnant women, carers, and those with chronic illness to be vaccinated every year.  We will invite you in writing for your vaccination to dedicated flu vaccine clinics.
