According to the staff of the health commission of Zhungeer banner in Ordos City, 27 vaccination sites have been set up in the whole banner, which are distributed in health centers, community health centers and maternal and child health centers, and there are especially many people who make an appointment for vaccination every day.

What needs to be reminded is that vaccination is strictly prohibited for people who are allergic to any component of the vaccine, as well as women during pregnancy, pregnancy and lactation.

Most parents support the vaccination of their children with cervical cancer vaccine, but some parents are still in the wait-and-see stage because of their poor understanding and some worry. The staff said that we hope that students, parents and all walks of life in the community should correctly understand the importance of vaccination with human papillomavirus adsorbed vaccine, start from the protection of their own health, actively carry out vaccination, and jointly participate in and promote the prevention and control of cervical cancer.

Jungar may become the first region in China to complete whos target of cervical cancer vaccination

The proportion of Chinese girls aged 9 to 14 who have been vaccinated against HPV may be less than 1%, far from the 90% recommended by the World Health Organization. Zhao Fanghui, director of the Epidemiology Department of the Cancer Hospital of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, once said.

The world health organization divides the prevention and control measures of cervical cancer, which is the fourth most common malignant tumor of women in the world, into three levels. The first level of prevention is vaccination against HPV. In May 2018, director general of the World Health Organization (who) Dr.TedrosAdhanom A global call for the elimination of cervical cancer by 2030 was launched, which said that Member States should achieve 90% coverage of HPV vaccine for girls under 15 years of age by 2030. But at present, only 30% of the women of the right age in China have been screened. Among the 7 million imported vaccines introduced, less than 1% of them are girls aged 9-14 years.

After vaccinating the existing school girls over the age of 13 in Zhungeer banner, only the 13-year-old girls entering junior high school will be vaccinated every year in order to protect the current generation from the disease caused by HPV infection. Qiao Youlin said that currently, Asian countries and regions, including China, generally recommend junior high school girls aged 13 to 15 as the main target population for cervical cancer vaccination. Due to the relatively low proportion of high school age girls who have sex, replanting can still benefit a lot.

During the period of CPPCC National Committee of the Chinese peoples Political Consultative Conference, Yu Ming, vice chairman of the CPPCC National Committee, proposed to include free vaccination for girls aged 14 in Beijing. The discussion on the inclusion of cervical cancer vaccine in immunization program has attracted wide attention. Cervical cancer vaccine was listed in Europe, America, Australia and other countries in 2006. So far, 104 countries in the world have been included in the EPI, that is to say, women of specific age can be vaccinated free of charge, but China has not yet included it. Professor Zhao Fanghui of Cancer Hospital of Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences said that at present, the price of imported vaccine is high and the supply is insufficient. However, China has a large population of age-matched vaccination, and there is a huge gap between supply and demand of cervical cancer vaccine. It is urgent to improve the accessibility of cervical cancer vaccine and realize the localization of cervical cancer vaccine. Only in this way can we realize the vaccination of cervical cancer vaccine for the right age population.
