With the HPV vaccine, your child could be one less at risk for future HPV-related cancers and diseases. GARDASIL 9 is the only vaccine that helps protect against 9 types of HPV (Types 6, 11, 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58). These 9 types are responsible for the majority of HPV-related cancers and diseases.
Like other vaccines, GARDASIL 9 works to help prevent disease when given before there is any contact with the virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends HPV vaccination for children at age 11 or 12.
