HPV immunisation programme

HPV immunisation is free for everyone aged 9 to 26, including non-residents under the age of 18.

HPV immunisation began in New Zealand in 2008. 

On 1 January 2017, HPV immunisation became free for everyone aged 9 to 26, including non-residents under the age of 18.

HPV immunisation is available through participating schools or from family doctors, local health centres and some Family Planning clinics.

Watch the videos telling Year 7 and 8 students about the immunisations.

HPV immunisation aims to protect young people from HPV infection and the risk of developing cervical cancer and a range of other HPV-related diseases later in life.
