McKay welcomes HPV vaccination investment

6 August, 2016

Sinn Féin MLA Daithí McKay has welcomed news that men in the north will be eligible to receive the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine.

The party's Health Spokesperson said:

“I welcome the news that my colleague Michelle O’Neill has announced an investment of over £100k into the HPV vaccination programme.

“It is great news that men who have sex with men in the north of Ireland will be eligible to receive the HPV vaccine. 

“Investment in this programme will help to provide protection for men under the age of 45 against HPV which can cause a range of cancers.” Ends/Críoch
