Question to the Department of Health and Social Care:
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what plans he has to ask the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation to make an assessment of the potential merits of a catch-up HPV vaccination programme for boys currently older than 12 to 13 years of age.
Answered by Jo Churchill - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department of Health and Social Care)
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) is due to discuss human papillomavirus vaccination at its February 2020 meeting. Usual practice is for draft minutes from JCVI meetings to be available within six weeks of the Committee meeting.
