In 2008, Boots continued to champion the importance of vaccines. The UK’s leading pharmacy-led, health and beauty retailer launched a pilot scheme in 10 London stores that offered a cervical cancer vaccination service. A series of three injections were available to women aged between 18 and 26 to immunize them against two forms of the human papillomavirus (HPV), which was known to be responsible for 70% of cervical cancer cases.

Built on the national vaccination service delivered by the NHS, the service later became available in 135 Boots stores across England and Wales in 2009, with availability extended to women aged 18-54.
