How come the grade 9 immunization program this year...

Question: 

How come the grade 9 immunization program this year (2017-2018) does not include the HPV shot?

Answer: 

The grade 9 immunization program does not include the HPV shot as girls that are currently in Grade 9 were offered HPV vaccine in grade 6. Girls born in 1994 or later who were not immunized in the school-based program, or did not complete their vaccine series are eligible for the vaccine up to 26 years of age. Please contact your immunization provider or your local community health centre/public health unit for more information. You will find the number for your health centre here.
