The Ministry of Health is expanding its immunization program. Dr. Delon Brennen, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, tells us the ministry is introducing Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine free of charge for children ages 9-11. HPV can lead to cervical cancer and other cancers of the genitals.
The ministry is also launching a “catch-up campaign” for MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) Vaccine.
And this fall, injectable polio vaccine will be available at age two months and four months, instead of the oral polio vaccine.
For more information, call the Ministry of Health at 502-4700 or visit the ministry or any public health clinic.
