Girls should get cervical cancer vaccination

All girls should be given an injection against cervical cancer when they reach the age of 12, the health council said on Tuesday.

The introduction of the vaccination programme will save hundreds of lives in time. Cervical cancer currently kills 250 women a year, the council said.
