Other routine and therapeutic immunizations are also offered to the general public.
We'd like to highlight the following:
HPV: It is approved for use in both Males and Females over 9 years of age. In April 2011, Gardasil®was approved for use in women up to the age of 45 years. Cervarix™ provides protection against the two HPV types that cause approximately 70 percent of all cervical cancers.
Meningitis: There are five main strains that cause illness (A, B, C, Y, and W-135). The meningococcal vaccine, Menactra®protects against four strains (A, C, Y, and W-135) and is 80% to 85% effective. Meningococcal vaccines can be given to people 2 months to 55 years of age (depending on the product). Immunization is recommended for some career choices and travelers but is not publicly funded for all ages.
Herpes: The Herpes Zoster vaccine Shingrix by GSK is recommended for all adults over the age of 50 and has been shown to prevent Shingles by 90%. Protection requires the administration of 2 shots separated by 2-6 months.
