Anyone can get an STI if they have sex without a condom. Using a condom correctly each time you have sex can help protect you and your partner(s) from STIs.
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a sexually transmitted virus. The HPV vaccine helps protect everyone for certain cancers. As of March 15, 2019, all Ontario students in grade 7 to 12 remain eligible for free HPV9 vaccinations. Also included are males born on or after 2004 who have either not started or have an incomplete HPV4 series, females in grade 9-12 who have either not started or have an incomplete HPV4 series; as well as men (aged 9-26 years) who have sex with men (MSM); including those who have an incomplete HPV4 series.
According to the Ontario Ministry of Health, “without immunization, three out of four sexually active Canadians will be infected with HPV at some point in their lives”.
