The government refuses to support the vaccination of boys against the deadly Human Papilloma virus (HPV) – a move that will cause thousands of cancer and cost a lot of lives.
In July, in a major victory for the campaign to end the campaign for the end of the campaign, Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced that the HPV vaccine, which was previously only available to girls, would be given to students aged 8, 12 and 13, from September 2019.
The vaccine was introduced only for girls just ten years ago, and the NHS has also set up a "catch" program to immunize all girls up to 18 years.
However, MoS learned that Mr Hancock and Steve Brine vaccine minister rejected this extension for boys.
HPV tumors usually strike long after infection, when men are in the middle ages. It is believed that a virus, which is spread by intimate contact and kisses, causes five percent of all tumors, including the mouth, throats, cervix and genitals.
The girls were originally preferred for vaccination because HPV causes cervical cancer, which kills about 1,000 women per year. But carcinoma in male-related HPV has increased by a quarter in the last decade and is now responsible for 2000 carcinogens every year.
Tomorrow, Mr. Worry get a letter from 16 leaders of medical groups including the British Dental Association and the Roial College of Surgeons. It writes: "On the basis of equality and improved public health, the opportunity must be used to vaccinate as many boys as possible."
It is added that the ZCS on vaccination and immunization (JCVI) lasted three years longer than it was obliged to introduce male vaccination.
"This meant that over a million extra boys remained unprotected," she remarked.
The Department of Health and Social Welfare states that the reason for not adhering to boys' schemes is that most girls are vaccinated and therefore it is unlikely that the virus will be passed on to boys.
This argument was attacked by experts because it ignored men who had sex with men, men who had sex with women from countries where there were no vaccinations, and parts of Britain where only half of the girls were vaccinated.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Social Welfare defended the decision, saying: "A high degree of use of HPV vaccine among girls has reduced the overall risk of unvaccinated boys who come in contact with HPV."
