HPV vaccination – isn’t it time?

The science is there, isn’t it time the political will was there?

Dear Dr Rees,
I wanted you to be the first to know.
We’ve just got word that the UK Government’s scientific advisors have finally listened, and have recommended expansion of Human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination programme to cover school-age boys.
HPV has been fuelling a surge in oropharyngeal cancers. And for years this profession has worked to win the argument for change.
Dentists are on the front line in the battle against oral cancer. So please, share this video.

We are now pressing all UK governments to move swiftly towards rollout of a national programme, so all our children can get protection from this devastating condition.
We have fought to put prevention into practice. This profession can take pride in what we’ve achieved, together.
Mick Armstrong
Chair, BDA

The Monday Morning Quote #487

“As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life—and travel—leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks – on your body or on your heart – are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt”

Anthony Bourdain
