Expanded HPV vaccination program for boys and adolescents to launch in Estonia starting next February
The Immunoprophylaxis Expert Committee operating under the Ministry of Social Affairs has made a significant decision, recommending vaccination against Human Papillomavirus (HPV) for boys as well. Additionally, all 15-18-year-olds are offered the opportunity for free catch-up vaccination. As a result, starting February of the next year, young individuals in Estonia aged 12-18 who are interested will have access to free vaccination against HPV. Furthermore, the committee recommends changing the current HPV vaccination schedule from a two-dose to a one-dose scheme.
