To ask the Scottish Government when it plans to roll out vaccinations against human papillomavirus (HPV) for adolescent boys.

Building on this success we plan to extend the HPV vaccine programme to boys later this year.
New findings have shown the levels of cancer-causing HPV in Scotland have dropped by 90% in young women, demonstrating the significant and continued benefits of our vaccination programme.
