In a nutshell: In 2008, the UK human papillomavirus vaccination programme was introduced to vaccinate all 12–13-year-old girls, with a 2-year catch up for those aged up to 18 years. Delivery has been principally through schools and general practitioners, although concern remains that all groups are not being reached and the full three doses may not be received by all. Many young sexually active females attend genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinics; therefore, this may be a potential location for vaccine delivery.
