RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — In a statement, Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health emphasised the importance of giving girls the Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine at a young age.

According to the Ministry of Health, it is critical for families to ensure that their daughters receive the HPV vaccine at a young age in order to help protect them from cervical cancer.

The vaccinations that girls will receive at a young age will help to boost their immunity and protect them from HPV, according to the Ministry of Health.

Before being exposed to the virus, girls aged 9 to 14 receive two doses of the HPV vaccination, and girls aged 15 and up receive three doses.

To ensure the desired benefit, the vaccination is divided into 6-12 months of administration.

It is worth noting that the HPV vaccine is administered to females aged 9 to 13 in Saudi Arabia as part of the national immunisation programme.

The World Health Organization (WHO) previously issued a report calling for the abolition of cervical cancer, which is the fourth most common cancer among women worldwide. It is also regarded as one of the most dangerous types of cancer.

The disease is caused by two types of HPV, a sexually transmitted infection with over 100 different forms that can be painful and stigmatising.

Cervical cancer can develop as a result of poor personal hygiene, as well as infection with Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). According to some studies, smoking may cause cervical cancer.
