Cervical Cancer Vaccines – HPV Vaccines in Singapore

Protect Yourself Against Cervical Cancer with the HPV Vaccine

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a group of viruses linked to several cancers, including cervical cancer, which is one of the most preventable types of cancer through vaccination. The HPV vaccine helps protect against the most common cancer-causing strains of HPV.


What is HPV and Why is Vaccination Important?

HPV is a sexually transmitted infection that can lead to cervical cancer, as well as other cancers such as anal, vaginal, vulvar, and throat cancers. The vaccine is highly effective in preventing infections from the high-risk HPV types that cause the majority of cervical cancer cases​ (HealthHub)​​ (HealthHub)

    Who Should Get the HPV Vaccine?

    In Singapore, the National Childhood Immunisation Schedule (NCIS) and National Adult Immunisation Schedule (NAIS) recommend HPV vaccination for all females aged 9 to 26 years. Vaccination is most effective when administered before the onset of sexual activity, but it can still be beneficial for sexually active individuals who may not have been exposed to all vaccine-covered HPV types​ (HealthHub)​​ (HealthHub)​.


    Vaccination Schedule

    • Ages 9 to 14: Two doses administered 5 to 13 months apart.
    • Ages 15 and above: Three doses with the second dose 1-2.5 months after the first and the third dose 5-12 months after the first​ (HealthHub)​.


    Importance of Regular Screening

    Even with vaccination, regular cervical cancer screening is crucial. The HPV vaccine does not protect against all HPV types that can cause cervical cancer. Women aged 25 to 29 are advised to have a Pap test every three years, while those aged 30 to 69 should have an HPV test every five years​ (HealthHub)​​ (Singapore Cancer Society)​.
