Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a common infection that can cause a variety of cancers. In order to combat this health threat, international healthcare regulators have recommended HPV vaccination as an effective method of preventing HPV. In this article, we will delve into the HPV vaccination process in Thailand.

What is HPV Vaccine?

HPV vaccine is a vaccine that protects against the effects of Human Papillomavirus (HPV). This sexually transmitted virus causes cervical cancer and is linked to other cancers in adults such as vaginal cancers, vulvar cancers, cancers of the mouth, throat, head, and neck, and genital warts.

There are three types of vaccines available today: bivalent (Cevarix), quadrivalent (Gardasil 4), and 9-valent (Gardasil 9). All of them are effective against the most frequent valence associated with cervical cancer, HPV types 16 and 18, whereas quadrivalent and 9-valent vaccinations are also effective against uncommon valence of HPV.  


HPV vaccines have been proven to be particularly efficient in the prevention of malignancies in women, with research showing that HPV infections have fallen by 88 percent in teen girls and 81 percent in young women. HPV vaccines are also successful in reducing HPV transmission in men. Meanwhile, once infected with HPV, the vaccine may be less effective. Also, younger children respond better to immunization than older ones.

HPV vaccines can be effective for at least 12 years without deterioration in efficacy. Furthermore, HPV vaccines are safe vaccines with very minor side effects such as discomfort, swelling, or redness at the injection site, fever, headache, and nausea. However, HPV vaccines are not recommended for pregnant women, individuals who are allergic to yeast, or those who have a history of severe allergies to any component of a vaccination.

Who is in need of an HPV Vaccine?

Despite the fact that the HPV vaccine can be administered as early as 9 years old, several health regulators recommend administering HPV vaccines at the ages of 11 to 12 for two doses at least six months apart. Teens and young adults between the ages of 14 and 26 should have three doses of vaccine, two months after the first dose and six months after the second dose. Catch-up doses are also recommended for persons under the age of 26 in order to finish the maximum effective three doses.

As previously stated, HPV vaccines are more effective at younger ages than at older years. People aged 27 to 45 can also receive vaccines to protect them from other strains that they do not yet have. None of the vaccines, however, can treat an existing HPV infection. In this case, we urge that you consult with your doctor about receiving HPV vaccines. 

What needs to be done to receive HPV Vaccine?

Receiving HPV vaccines is the same as any other vaccine. At first, the doctor will then inquire about your medical history, drug allergies and hypersensitivity, and your vaccination history. Following that, the doctor will inform you about the process and what needs to be monitored after receiving vaccines. The procedure will be performed by a medical professional. After the injection and the doctor will require an observation period of 30 minutes in a seating or lying position. If no adverse effects or abnormalities occur, the doctor will finalize your vaccine record and the vaccination process is complete.

What about the cost?

The MSRP of a 4-valent vaccine (Gardasil 4) is about 200 USD for 2 doses and 480 USD for 3 doses, while a 9-valent vaccine (Gardasil 9) starts at 680 USD. Both of them are only for vaccines and do not include Hospital fees and Doctor fees. As a result, many governments have established programs to assist people in obtaining HPV vaccines at low or no cost. Furthermore, most health insurance plans cover the expense of HPV immunizations.

In Thailand, HPV vaccines are included in national immunization guidelines and are available for free to girls aged 11 to 15. Furthermore, average pricing for the same HPV vaccines in private hospitals is much lower than in the Western hemisphere, with two-dose packages costing around USD 300 and three-dose packages costing around USD 500.
