Appointments for the latest variation of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine are now being made available in a number of hospitals in Beijing, reports the Beijing News.

People will have to wait around 20 days to receive an injection of the nine-variant HPV vaccine, which costs around 1,300 yuan.

Chinese authorities approved the importing of the nine-valent HPV vaccine to the mainland in April.

The nine-valent HPV vaccine has been tested effective in preventing up to nine types of HPV and it has been in high demand in China since the first batch of it arrived in Hainan Province in late May.

HPV has been linked to a global rise in cervical cancer rates among women.

Medical professionals recommend young women receive the vaccine before they become sexually active, as HPV is spread through sexual activity.
