PROTECTION MAY STILL BE POSSIBLE

 
 

If you are an adult up to age 45 who has not received an HPV vaccine, it may not be too late.

Even if you’ve been infected with one type of HPV, it may not be too late to help protect yourself from certain cancers caused by other types of the virus covered by the vaccine to which you haven’t been exposed to yet.

Infection with one type of HPV does not prevent infection with another type. GARDASIL 9 does not treat HPV infection.

Talk to your doctor and ask about GARDASIL 9.
