How much does it cost?

The HPV vaccine is provided free in schools for girls and boys aged 12–13 years as part of the National HPV Vaccination Program.

Girls and boys aged up to 19 who are not in the eligible school year levels can also obtain two doses of the vaccine for free from their local immunisation provider or doctor as part of the ongoing program. Those aged 15 or older at the time of their first vaccination require three doses for best protection.

For everyone else aged 20 and over, the vaccination is still available at a cost from your doctor or local immunisation provider.

Make sure you advise your doctor you'd like the vaccine before going to the appointment, so they are able to order stocks of the vaccine.

In Victoria, free vaccination is also available for some special at-risk groups. Find out more.
