Like most injections (jabs or jags), the HPV vaccine is injected into your upper arm.
If you are under 15 years old, you will have 2 separate doses of the HPV vaccine:
However, you can have the 2nd dose up to 24 months after the first dose.
If you are 15 or over, or will turn 15 during the time you are having the HPV vaccine, you will have 3 separate doses of the HPV vaccine:
In total, it will take 6 months to have all the doses.
