Chapter 2 – The Cervix

National immunisation program

Australia launched the world’s first government-funded HPV vaccination program as a primary prevention against cervical cancer in 2007. (29) The National Immunisation Program initially funded a school-based program for females aged 12-13 years (with a two-year catch-up program for girls aged 13-26 years). In 2013 the program was extended to include vaccination of males aged 12-13 years (with a catch-up program for 14-15 year old boys until December 2014).

From 2007-2017 Australia’s National Immunisation program used the quadrivalent HPV vaccine (Gardasil). This was replaced in 2018 by the nonavalent HPV vaccine (Gardasil 9).
