  • Abstract : We assessed the epidemiological and economic impact of potential health advantages of the HPV vaccination in Japan among girls and boys of ages 12–16. An age-structured mathematical model of HPV transmission was constructed. Compared to halted vaccination, girls-only vaccination programs with either 4vHPV or 9vHPV are cost-effective, but gender-neutral vaccination programs are less so. Adding boys to an existing successful girls-only program is not cost-effective since men are protected by herd immunity.
