Gardasil wart vaccinations are now available at Burrell Street. It protects against the four major types of warts, but is not available for heterosexual men or women over 18 on the NHS.
We want you to have a healthy, infection-free sex life and offering this vaccine on a private basis is an immediate solution.
The Gardasil vaccine is given in three doses within a year. After the first dose you’re asked to return at two months and six months to complete the course. Even if you’ve already had warts, it’s unlikely that you’ll have been infected with all four major types – so we recommend this vaccination for everyone. The efficacy of this vaccine has been demonstrated in Australia, and their school vaccine programme now includes boys too.
There is no routine screening at present for the warts virus, so there’s no way of knowing if your partner/s have warts or are passing it on. In order to stop wart infection, and the possibility of associated cancers, we’ve decided to begin providing Gardasil privately and offering it to all.
Gardasil is an expensive vaccine. We’re providing it to you as cheaply as we can, and offer the full course of the original Gardasil (three vaccinations) at £400.
Gardasil 9 – Price drop!
We are pleased to also offer the new Gardasil 9 vaccination.
The original Gardasil protects against the four main types of wart virus – and the new formulation, protects against nine – giving extended immunity. We are offering this at a new lower price of £465. Like the original Gardasil, it is given in three doses at two and six months after the first dose.
It is important to note that neither vaccination protects against previous infection of the wart virus.
If you have already had a course of Gardasil 4, you are able to have a course of Gardasil 9, to give extended protection.
Gardasil 9 for young people aged 13 – 18
Gardasil 9 is available privately for young people 13 to 18 years old. This service is for those who have opted out or have missed the school vaccination programme and want an enhanced HPV vaccination. A parent or guardian must attend the appointments with the young person in their care. We are not able to offer this service to young people who have had a full or partial course of Gardasil 4.
Young people aged 13 are offered a two dose schedule at 0 and 6 months priced at £310
Young people of 14 years and older are offered a three dose schedule at 0, 2 and 6 months at £465
If you’re interested in being vaccinated, please contact us by email – SRHBusinessSupportTeam@gstt.nhs.uk
We’ll then call you to book an appointment and arrange payment over the phone with a credit or debit card. Please let us know when you call us whether you want to receive the original Gardasil or the new Gardasil 9.
