What should you know about cervical cancer vaccination

What should you know about cervical cancer vaccination

 How does the vaccine work?
It gets your body to produce antibodies
against the HPV virus. These antibodies
protect your body from an HPV infection by
fighting the virus when it tries to attack the
cervix. 

Who should take the vaccine and when

       Ideally, the vaccine should be taken as early
       as possible after the age of 9 years but girls
       and women of any age up to 45 can benefit
       from this vaccine. 
       Expectant mothers should not take the
       vaccine during their pregnancy.
