The total cost of the three injections is £429
|How long it lasts|
Research is ongoing to see how long protection from the vaccine lasts. However, at present, booster vaccines are not thought to be needed.
|Most common side effects|
Most patients experience no side effects. However, you may experience pain, redness, itching, bruising or swelling at the injection site, headache, dizziness, nausea, fever and tiredness. Any side effects should not last more than 2-3 days.
|Rare but serious side effects||There are a few rare but serious side effects you need to know about before deciding to have the vaccine. These include: difficulty breathing, encephalomyelitis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, and bleeding disorders. |
Risk of severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis)
Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction. Symptoms can include fainting, shortness of breath, sudden drop in blood pressure and swelling of the face and neck. This is extremely rare and typically happens within 10 minutes of receiving the injection.
All LloydsPharmacy staff providing this vaccination service are fully trained in managing anaphylaxis.
Selecting a participating store
You will need to select the participating LloydsPharmacy store where you want to receive the injection itself. When you have ordered and paid for the vaccine online, telephone the pharmacy to arrange an appointment for your first injection.
About Gardasil 9 Injections
How does Gardasil 9 work?
Gardasil 9 gives immunity against nine types of human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is the main cause of genital warts, and cancers of the female genitals (cervix, vagina and vulva) and anus. HPV is transmitted during sex, or skin to skin contact with the genitals.
