How to get vaccinated

Who should get vaccinated

About 75% of sexually active Canadians will have at least one HPV infection during their lifetime. Many people who have HPV don’t even realize it because the virus often has no signs or symptoms – which means they can pass on the virus to others without knowing it.

All eligible individuals aged 9 through 45 should consider getting GARDASIL®9 to help protect themselves against genital warts and certain HPV-related cancers.

IN MEMORY OF CHRISTA*

Even if you think you’re too young, you could still be at risk. This is Christa’s C-story.

Diagnosed with cervical cancer at age 33.

“On the day I gave birth to my son, I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. Nothing could have been more of a shock to me. I struggled to share the news of my diagnosis with loved ones because I didn’t want this serious news to take away from the very exciting news that I had given birth to a beautiful baby boy.”

Christa was an incredible mother. Although she sadly did not survive her battle with cancer, she was a fighter and was open and honest about her illness.
