HPV Vaccination Program at Universiti Putra Malaysia

Salam and a very good day everyone! Wow, it has been too long right? Now I am back with an announcement for all girls out there who were born on the year 1993 until 1995. Yes, this is a very important message for all of them so please let them know by kindly sharing this blog post to your friends on Facebook, Twitter and other relevant social media sites.

Do you know that the HPV Vaccination Program (PVHPV) is initiated by Lembaga Penduduk dan Pembangunan Keluarga Negara (LPPKN)under the provision of Kementerian Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga dan Masyarakat (KPWKM)? This vaccination program mainly aims to reduce the load of diseases as a cause of Cervical Cancer for the next 20 years to come. Apart from that, it also targets to:

-Conduct HPV vaccination to all women born in the year 1993-1995.
-Protect Malaysian women from the risk of HPV infection.
-Lessen the risk of cervical cancer among women in Malaysia.
Now, let me tell you a brief idea about Cervical Cancer and its connection to HPV. Cervical cancer is a disease in which the cells in the cervix grow abnormally and about 99.7% of cervical cancer cases are caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Vaccinating against cervical cancer may reduce deaths by two-thirds because it is the third most common cancer among Malaysians!
This definitely needs to be stopped. Under the government initiative, LPPKN will be going to universities in Lembah Klang, Sabah and Sarawak to give out FREE vaccines to all girls out there from the 2nd of October 2013 until 16th of November. The vaccination program starts at 9 AM to 4 PM and it is not only restricted to female university students. You can tag along your own friends, daughters or nieces to these venues stated:

There will be tonnes of exciting events that is going to be conducted at Bukit Ekspo, Universiti Putra Malaysia this weekend during the HPV Vaccination Program on 26th of October 2013. Participants who register to vaccinate in a group of FIVE or MORE will be eligible for a lucky draw with prizes being sponsored during the "Girls Day Out" session that is going to be announced soon. 
Apart from that, participants that have completed all THREE doses will be given a pass to a secret concert with locally-renowned artistes that is scheduled in the second quarter of next year, 2nd March 2014. Eligible participants can also receive HPV vaccination at any one of the 58 LPPKN Nur Sejahtera clinics or health centers at public universities nationwide. For further information, please log on to http://facebook.com/PVHPV for information of roadshow locations and more. This is a FREE vaccination program so why don't you just go and grab this great opportunity right? Remember, there are about two to three new cases are confirmed everyday so ACT NOW, and ACT FAST!
