Grade 6 School-based immunization

The Yukon Immunization Schedule recommends that Grade 6 students receive: Human Papillomavirus (HPV) immunization (girls only)

 HPV immunizations are provided at no cost as part of your child’s routine immunizations. The routine Yukon Immunization Program is based on the recommendations of the Canadian Advisory Committee on Immunizations and is recommended by the Territorial Advisory Committee on Immunizations, and Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Brendan Hanley.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV)

An immunization that protects against HPV infection is the best way to protect your daughter against these infections that can lead to serious consequences.

HPV causes genital warts, cervical cancer and other, less common but serious cancers, including cancers of the vulva, vagina, penis, anus, and oropharynx (back of throat including base of tongue and tonsils).

HPV spreads through sexual contact (including genital touching) and is the most common sexually transmitted infection in Canada and across the world. About seven out of 10 women will have at least one type of HPV infection over their lifetime. In Canada, an average of one woman per day dies from cervical cancer. In Yukon, an average of one or two women will develop invasive cervical cancer each year.

HPV immunization is publically funded if your daughter receives the first immunization in this series before starting Grade 7.

Anyone not eligible for the publicly-funded HPV immunization program either now or in the future, can still receive the HPV immunization, at cost, at all Yukon health centres. The cost is $333.00 for the series of three shots.
