HPV can cause cancers that also develop in men, such as anal cancer. It is reported that recently, the father of the HPV vaccine, Harald Zur Hausen, said in an interview with the media that men will not suffer from cervical cancer, but they are the main communicators of HPV viral factors. It can protect their partner, and secondly because the HPV virus can also cause other cancers, vaccination can also protect itself.
Some countries are promoting the public vaccination of male HPV vaccine. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a report in 2019 that the HPV vaccine can prevent more than 90% of cancers caused by human papillomavirus, calling for an increase in the HPV vaccination rate in the United States to 80%, and recommending that all children aged 11 to 12 receive the HPV vaccine. The British government said in 2019 that it would vaccinate male children against HPV.
Currently, the vaccine approved in China is for women.
