Can I get the shots now?
It is recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that you should get the HPV vaccination after your delivery, avoid taking HPV shots during your pregnancy.
Can my husband get injected as well?
Yes, your hubby can get injected if his age falls under 26 years old. HPV vaccine also protects men from getting HPV related diseases!
Calling out 1992-1996 born women!
You can enjoy free shots if you’re born between 1992 and 1996. Malaysian Government will pay for your vaccination cost. Women who inject after they enter active sex life can still get protection from the vaccination. Therefore, we encourage every female to get vaccinated.
