By 31 August 2011, we estimate 1.1 million females aged 16 or older in England had received the full course of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine (Cervarix®) that provides protection against cervical cancer. This is the vaccine offered in the routine HPV immunisation programme.

Data on the number of females that have received the HPV vaccine (Gardasil®), that also provides protection against genital warts, are not held centrally.
