The government of the Federal District (GDF) will start this week vaccination against human papillomavirus (HPV) in girls 11 to 13 years studying in public and private schools. The immunization will be made by teachers in the college itself, according to the Department of Health, were trained for action.

The child or adolescent aged defined need parental permission to receive the dose applied in three steps. According to the department, parents are being told by the colleges to allow vaccination.

In September last year, the Senate approved a bill that provides for girls 9-13 years have the right to receive free of charge in public health HPV vaccine. The text, authored by Senator Vanessa Grazziotin (PCdoB-AM), still needs to be analyzed by the House of Representatives.

The Health Department of the Federal District, in partnership with the Department of Education decided to immunize, at first, only girls 11 to 13 years due to the high price of the vaccine. It is expected that in the coming years, all aged under project receives the dose.

The GDF said that the new dose is the vaccination schedule from the public, but the effectiveness has guaranteed. Adverse reactions such as fever may be registered like any other immunization process. The biggest warning is that the vaccine only protects against HPV and does not prevent other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
