WHY VACCINATION  MATTERS

 

Getting the HPV vaccine is important. The vaccine is one way to help protect yourself from certain HPV-related cancers and diseases later in life.

 

WHO CAN GET  THE HPV VACCINE?

For individuals who have not been vaccinated previously, CDC recommends vaccination for:

 

FEMALES

13–26

MALES

13–21

Males aged 22 through 26 years may also be vaccinated.

CDC recommends routine HPV vaccination at age 11 or 12 years, but it may be given from the age of 9 years.

TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT  THE HPV VACCINE

 

For appropriate young adults through age 26, it's not too late to vaccinate.

GARDASIL 9 may not fully protect everyone, nor will it protect against diseases caused by other HPV types or against diseases not caused by HPV. GARDASIL 9 does not prevent all types of cervical cancer, so it’s important for women to continue routine cervical cancer screenings. GARDASIL 9 does not treat cancer or genital warts.
