Vaccination against human papillomavirus (HPV) in Center Elementary School in Brasilia 01 of Structural

About 16,000 girls 11 to 13 years studying in public and private schools of the Federal District were immunized against human papillomavirus (HPV). The campaign began on April 1 and the goal is to immunize 64,000 students until the 26th of this month.

The Health Department of the Federal District estimated that immunization is within the expectation of vaccinating 25% of the target week. HPV can cause cervical cancer, a disease that kills about 90 women a year, just in the capital.

To ensure the effectiveness of the vaccine requires three doses with an interval of 60 and 180 days after the first. The immunization schedule was organized according to the schedule of public and private schools, respecting the holiday period. The first dose will be applied until April 26. The second is scheduled for the period 3-28 June and the third, from September 30 to November 1.

The DF currently has 800 public and private schools. The Department of Health guidance is that establishments that have not yet scheduled the vaccine seek the Center for Epidemiological Surveillance of regional health.
