By "hpv jab" I assume you mean the vaccine for a few of the HPV strains. When you say "year 8" I assume you mean girls who are about 13-16 years old. Am I correct so far?
The vaccine was approved for girls/ young women from ages 8 to 26 (I think that's right).
I've seen a lot of posts asking about the vaccine here at HB. I assume there is a big push in the UK for year 8 girls to have the vaccine. Am I right?
I don't know why the UK is pushing for girls to have the vaccine right now. I don't know if it is a marketing strategy or what. There are many plusses to getting the vaccine. There are also some concerns about the vaccine.
I don't think I've answered any of your questions. Sorry.
