About the HPV Vaccination Service
At Boots, we recognise that some people may wish to consider vaccination against HPV, either for themselves or their children, but that they're outside the inclusion criteria for the national HPV Vaccination programme.
The Boots HPV Vaccination Service is available privately for both men and women aged 16 to 44, subject to eligibility criteria*. The service is offered by specially trained Boots pharmacists in selected Boots pharmacies.
HOW IT WORKS
How long will my appointment take?
The pharmacy consultation will take approximately 10 minutes. You'll need to stay in the pharmacy for around 15 minutes after your vaccination, just in case you have any immediate side effects.
To avail of the service, you’ll first need to complete your HPV Vaccination Consultation with your doctor. You can complete this online^ at MyClinic by clicking here†. Once you've completed the consultation, you’ll need to book an appointment in your chosen Boots pharmacy and your prescription will be sent via Healthmail, ready for your appointment. You'll need to pay for your vaccinations, but not until you've attended your appointment.
Please note that HPV vaccination is not recommended routinely for all adults aged 27 through 45 years. If you are aged 27-44 it is recommended that you discuss with your doctor whether HPV vaccination may be of benefit to you. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions below for further information.
The number of vaccinations that you need to complete the vaccination course will be decided by your doctor, this might be one, two or three doses. The price of each vaccination is €185.
