The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisations (JCVI) has recommended that the HPV immunisation programme should be extended to cover boys.

The JCVI has been reviewing the evidence for vaccinating boys since 2013. Last year it said that extending the programme to cover boys would not be cost effective in an interim statement, however it postponed its final recommendation after agreeing it needed to see further analyses on costs.
In its statement, the JCVI said that under standard economic methodology, extending the vaccine to boys would not be considered cost-effective. However, given that the benefits of the programme would be seen over an extended period of time, it agreed to apply a different rate to assessing the vaccine which meant that a gender neutral programme was deemed to be cost-effective.

    JCVI says YES to LAIV for preventing flu in children

    30.08.2016

    In August 2016, JCVI was asked to review updated data from the 2015/16 season in the UK and other countries, in light of emerging evidence of low effectiveness of the nasal spray vaccine, lower than inactivated vaccine, reported in the United States (US). After reviewing evidence from across the UK, Finland, Canada and the United States following the 2015/16 influenza season, much of which demonstrates good overall effectiveness, JCVI continues to recommend using the live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV, the nasal spray vaccine) for preventing flu in children and strongly supports the continuation of the UK childhood influenza immunisation programme.
