The Dept of Health is urging all parents of teenage girls to make sure their daughters have the HPV Vaccine.

The vaccine can eliminate up to 70% of the virus that can cause cervical cancer and is only being taken up by just over 2 thirds of those in the right age bracket on the Island.

Vicki Fleming is a former cancer patient who had to go through radical treatment that left her unable to have more children and she doesn't want anyone other women to be in the same position.
