Carron's story

Carron Hulme talks about her experience of surviving cervical cancer, and her daughters Charlotte and Mollie talk about the HPV vaccine.

Charlotte received three doses of the HPV vaccine, but in 2014 the schedule changed. Girls will now receive two doses, as long as they get the first dose when they are aged 12-13. The HPV vaccine is expected to prevent about 70% of cervical cancers. However, it is important that girls who are vaccinated continue to take up the offer of cervical smear testing later in life, so that other kinds of cervical cancer can be picked up.
