Don’t miss it – your HPV vaccination is close. With that slogan, the RIVM and the GGD are trying to encourage young adults to get their first, free HPV vaccination before July 1 during a catch-up campaign for 18 to 27-year-olds.
To reach them, the young people can not only go to regular GGD locations, but also to special vaccination buses that have been set up as ‘Halte HPV’ in places where many young adults come, such as educational institutions and shopping centers. And pop-up vaccination locations have been set up at train stations in Utrecht, Eindhoven and Rotterdam, among others. Of the more than 1.3 million young people who received a vaccination invitation at the beginning of this year, just under 20 percent have used it so far.
