The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) recommends that adolescents born in 2004 and 2005 be vaccinated at twelve-week intervals between doses one and two.
The government supports the decision. Extended intervals should provide a better vaccine response, according to updated scientific information.
In August, when the decision was made that 16- and 17-year-olds would receive the vaccine, the FHI recommended an interval of eight to twelve weeks.
