HPV vaccine appointments available in Beijing
Appointments for the latest variation of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine are now being made available in a number of hospitals in Beijing.
People will have to wait around 20 days to receive an injection of the nine-variant HPV vaccine, which costs around 1,300 yuan.
Chinese authorities approved the importing of the nine-valent HPV vaccine to the mainland in April.
Medical professionals recommend young women receive the vaccine before they become sexually active, as HPV is spread through sexual activity.
