Gay and bisexual men will now receive the HPV vaccine in the UK.
The UK government has announced that men who have sex with men aged up to 45 will be able to receive the vaccine at GUM clinics.
Currently, only girls receive the vaccine in schools.
For the past few years, there have been calls for boys to also receive the vaccine to ensure they are protected from HPV-related conditions. On the other side of the argument, there are those that have said boys are already protected as they will not get the virus from girls.
But then, under these rules, men who have sex with men are not protected.
