HPV vaccine shortage

Tuesday, May 22, 2018

National News

A global shortage of the HPV vaccine, Gardasil 9, is affecting New Zealand supply.

Family Planning is aware of the shortage and is following PHARMAC advice in managing this.

This means if you have already started the vaccine, we are postponing your second and third doses until supplies are available again. There is no problem with delaying the second and third dose as long as you have both of them within a year of the first dose.

Don’t worry, we’ll keep track and will contact you when we have the vaccine available again.

If you haven’t started the immunisation programme yet, we’ll delay your first dose until new supplies arrive. If you are 26 and have to wait until you are 27 as a result of this shortage, you will still be eligible to have your vaccine free of charge (funded).

New supplies of the vaccine are expected in New Zealand in September.

Family Planning has clinics located throughout New Zealand. Use the clinic finder to find your nearest clinic.
