HPV immunisation began in New Zealand in 2008.

On 1 January 2017, HPV immunisation became free for everyone aged 9 to 26, including non-residents under the age of 18.

HPV immunisation is available through participating schools or from family doctors, local health centres and some Family Planning clinics.

HPV immunisation aims to protect young people from HPV infection and the risk of developing cervical cancer and a range of other HPV-related diseases later in life.
