The HPV vaccine protects against four strains of the HPV virus: 6, 11, 16 and 18. Most cervical cancers in the UK (70%) are caused by strains 16 and 18. Types 6 and 11 cause around 90% of genital warts cases.
There are many types of HPV, some of which are called “high risk” because they’re linked to the development of cancers, such as cervical cancer, anal cancer, genital cancers, and cancers of the head and neck. Other types can cause conditions like warts or verrucas.
Nearly all cervical cancers (99.7%) are caused by infection with a high-risk type of HPV.
