The vaccination will be provided by Doktor24. To get adequate protection, you need three doses of the vaccine, taken with an interval of two to six months.

Briefly on HPV and what Posithiva Gruppen is calling for
HPV stands for human papillomavirus, and is a sexually transmitted virus. Most people get one or different types of the virus at some point in their lives. Some strains of HPV may lead to cell changes in mucous membranes, which in the long run can lead to cancer.
HPV vaccination prevents infection by most of the HPV types that can cause cancer. Since 2020, all children in Sweden are offered free HPV vaccination in middle school. The HPV vaccine works best if given before a person is becoming sexually active. However, evidence suggests that some groups, such as people living with HIV up to the age of 45, men who have sex with men and transgender people could benefit from the vaccination even later in life.
Posithiva Gruppen is calling for a national program offering free HPV vaccines to people who are at higher risk of developing HPV-related cancer. PG is working towards this together with with Sexperterna, RFSL Stockholm, RFSL Ungdom, RFSU, RFSU Stockholm, Hiv-Sverige, Riksförbundet Noaks Ark and Noaks Ark Stockholm.
