Hepatitis B is a blood borne virus which can cause chronic liver disease and cancer of the liver. It is passed on through sexual transmission, blood products and from mother to child. If you are at persistant risk of exposure to hepatitis B then vaccination is recommended, a full hepatitis B course involves 3 vaccinations over a 6 month period.
The Gardasil HPV vaccinations protect against infection with four HPV types. Gardasil protects against the types of HPV that cause 7 out of 10 of all cervical cancers.
Over 99% effective in preventing pre-cancerous lesions associated with HPV types 16 and 18 in young women.
Gardasil may not fully protect everyone, nor will it protect against diseases caused by other HPV types or against diseases not caused by HPV. Gardasil does not prevent all types of cervical cancer, so it’s important for women to continue routine cervical cancer screenings.
