Lately, several ads are being shown about cervical cancer awareness. Local celebrity endorsers namely, Kris Aquino, Maxine and Pia Magalona were tapped to promote this campaign.
So what is cervical cancer? Cervical cancer is malignant neoplasm of the cervix or cervical area. Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is a necessary factor in the development of almost all cases of cervical cancer. Cervarix has been shown to be 92% effective in preventing HPV.

It's a good thing that our company assisted us for paying the vaccine. We were given a total of 3 shots with 1, 3 and 6 months interval. Because of our membership with MaxiCare as well, the vaccine costs P 1,700 per shot (excluding the professional fee). That's a total of Php 5,100 but I heard the usual price would cost you around 7-9k Php.
I asked for the vaccine tube for remembrance. I'm done completing our vaccine to protect me for life against cervical cancer. How about you?
