Health officials say the HPV vaccine for 12 to 13-year-old boys, starting after the summer, will prevent 29,000 cancers in UK men in the next 40 years.
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
The boys will be eligible from the start of the new school year, 11 years after girls were first vaccinated.
The jab protects against human papilloma virus, which causes many oral, throat and anal cancers.
One man, Jamie Rae, says he went "to hell and back" during his treatment for throat cancer caused by the virus.
"All the things you enjoy are gone. I couldn't speak or eat for months afterwards, and I was just skeletal by the end of it," he says.
