HPV Cervical Screening
HPV cervical screening is a new way of screening, first introduced into Ireland in March 2020. It is not a test for cancer, it is a test to help prevent more cancers from developing by testing for the human papilloma virus (HPV).
This test is free of charge for women, aged over 25, who are due a test under the national screening programme. You can check your eligibility for a free smear at www.cervicalcheck.ie
Private cervical smear testing service is also available upon request for women aged 25 and over.
HPV Vaccination Service
We provide vaccination against the HPV (Human papilloma virus) with the most up to date Gardasil 9 vaccine. The HPV vaccine protects against the HPV virus which can cause cancer and genital warts in men and women. It can prevent against the types of HPV that cause nine out of ten cancers. The vaccine also offers men protection against some anal and oral cancers. It is currently used for women and men aged 9-26 years, but also available to those outside of these age ranges. Patients will need to see our doctors to assess suitability, with first dose available on the same day. New clinical evidence supports getting the vaccine even if there is HPV detected on a smear test & for all women and men.
National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) recommend (2022) administered by injection into the muscle of the arm:
Single Vaccine to males & females aged 9 to 24.
Two Vaccines six months apart for over anyone over 25.
