Gardasil

The Gardasil vaccination can reduce your chances of getting cervical cancer and genital warts by immunising you against four common strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV). This is a group of viruses which are usually spread by sexual intercourse and which cause many cases of cervical cancer and genital warts.

3 injections (one at first, then two more approx. 2 and 6 months apart)

Key Information

The medicine

Gardasil, a course of three vaccines against HPV 6, 11, 16 and 18.

Cost of the service

The total cost of the three injections is the same, regardless of whether you choose Cervarix or Gardasil (£399).

How long it lasts

Research is ongoing to see how long the effects of each vaccine last. There is currently no indication for having a booster with either HPV vaccine.

Most common side effects

Most patients experience no side effects from receiving Cervarix or Gardasil. However you may experience pain, redness or swelling at the injection site, headache, sore muscles, itching, rash, upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain or, more rarely, dizziness. Any side effects should not last more than 2-3 days.

Risk of severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis)

Anaphylaxis occurs when a patient has a severe allergic reaction to a vaccine they are given. Symptoms of anaphylaxis can include fainting, shortness of breath, falling blood pressure and swelling of the face and neck. Anaphylaxis is extremely rare and typically happens within 10 minutes of a patient 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 Injections

How does Gardasil work?

Gardasil provides immunisation against four types of human papillomavirus, which are usually transmitted during sex. These viruses disrupt the normal functioning of cells in the cervix and anus (and penis in men) and can cause cancer.

How can I get the injections?

1. Complete our online questionnaire. In this short form you will be asked which vaccine you prefer, Cervarix or Gardasil. Click here for information on the difference between these two vaccines.

2. Then select which LloydsPharmacy store you would like to be vaccinated in. Log in or register to make the payment online. 

3. One of our doctors will look at your responses to check you are suitable to receive the vaccine you require. 

4. Telephone your selected pharmacy to book your appointment. You will need to visit two more times to receive your second and third vaccinations.

Alternative Treatments

Cervarix is another course of three injections which immunises against HPV and therefore can reduce your chances of getting cervical cancer.
