HPV vaccine now for boys and girls aged 9 years to under 27 years-

+ Gardasil® 9 vaccine is funded on the National Immunisation Schedule for all aged 9 years to under 27 years.

Gardasil 9 covers the same four human papillomaviruses (HPVs) as Gardasil plus an additional five types known to cause approximately 20% of cervical cancers and some other cancers (HPV 31, 33, 45, 52, 58).
In New Zealand, the incidence of genital warts in men and women has more than halved since the introduction of the vaccine to girls in 2008. The vaccine is more than 83% effective in preventing persistent infection with HPV types 16 and 18 (precursors of cervical cancers). Fewer abnormal cervical smear results are being reported.
