vaccination-cervical cancer
I see the new vaccination against cervical cancer is available without prescription - can one get it at clinics like Dischem etc?
also can any person have it at any stage? do you need annual pap smears after having it?

The vaccine has to be given by either a nurse or doctor so you do need to go via a medical person. As Me says, it should be given before the commencement of sexual activity.
