子宮頸癌疫苗注射

子宮頸癌是香港婦女常見癌症之一,主要由某些類型的人類乳頭瘤病毒(HPV)引致。婦女可透過疫苗注射預防感染病毒,而最早接受疫苗注射的建議年齡為9歲。女童越早接種疫苗,體內產生的抗體水平會較高;在未有性接觸前接種,疫苗的保護效用亦越大。

Cervical Cancer Vaccination

Cervical Cancer is a common female cancer caused by certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV infection can be prevented by vaccination, which is recommended for girls starting from the age of nine. When girls get vaccinated at a younger age, their body produces a higher level of antibodies. The protection is also greater when the vaccine is received before the start of sexual activity.
