These data are consistent with the reduced prevalence of high risk HPV in Scotland.
The bivalent vaccine is confirmed as being highly effective vaccine and should greatly reduce the incidence of cervical cancer.
In 2008, Scotland introduced a national immunisation programme against HPV using the bivalent vaccine, which was used until 2012.
The immunisation programme was school based, targeted girls aged 12 and 13 (routine vaccination), and was supplemented with a three year catch-up programme to age 18.
