uOttawa is hosting three Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination clinics.

In Canada, approximately 75% of sexually active people will have at least one HPV infection in their lifetime, with the highest rates of HPV infection occurring in young people aged 15 to 24. Vaccination is the best way to protect yourself against HPV. The HPV vaccine provides protection from the nine HPV types that cause about 90% of cervical cancers and the two HPV types that cause over 90% of genital warts. If you aren't vaccinated against HPV yet, join us to protect yourself and your partner(s).
