Can The Schedule Of Cervical HPV Injections Be Moved Forward?
I’m Bella Andani on March 10, to be exact, I vaccinated Cervarix/HPV and it was recommended by the doctor on April 10, 2018 to come to run the 2nd Vaccine because the doctor said my first injection was going to be 2 months apart, but I couldn’t do it on the 10th tomorrow. is it possible to speed up the vaccine today? Thank you.
Hello Sister Bella,
The provision of HPV vaccination is recommended as one of the routine vaccines for adolescent to adult men and women, especially women who have never had sexual intercourse to prevent variants of the HPV virus from causing cancer such as cervical cancer. Vaccination is given in 3 doses, namely: Dose 1 at the initial injection. Dose 2 is given at least 1-2 months after the first dose. Dose 3 is given at least 6 months after the first dose. (Source: Guidelines for Immunization in Adults 2017, PAPDI)
If the injection schedule is scheduled for April 10, but you are unable to do so, you can arrange the schedule by contacting your doctor between 1-2 months after March 10, i.e. April 10 to May 10 at the latest. Generally, the next vaccine is given a distance of at least 4 weeks so that the antibodies produced by the first injection are not disturbed by the second injection that is too fast. Set a schedule for the next injection between the week that fits you and your doctor's time.
Keep yourself clean by taking regular baths, avoid sharing towels or clothes with other people. Avoid having risky sex. Take care of yourself by eating nutritious food and getting enough rest. Hope it is useful.
