All men who have sex with men, 45 and under, can access the NEW HPV vaccine for free at SRP and Sandyford. This means men can “get the set” the next time they visit SRP by making sure they are up to date with their Hep A, Hep B and now HPV vaccines. The vaccine protects against cancers caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) and genital warts. The vaccine will be offered to all eligible men attending sexual health services as part of their regular sexual health check up. Martin Murchie, Sexual Health Advisor told the Sandyford Express “Make sure to ask us about the new HPV vaccine at your next visit, we’re happy to answer all your questions so you can make the best decision for your sexual health needs.” Other individuals, including those over 45, may be eligible for the HPV vaccine and we recommend discussing this with us the next time you visit Sandyford or SRP.
Planning ahead and taking control will give you the benefit of knowing that whatever else is going on in 2017, you’ll be taking care of your sexual health.Read More
