HPV vaccine: The hpv shot are a series of 3, did you get the entire cycle? The menactra is protection again meningococcal meningitis so would not effect you chances of hpv at all. The vaccine is effective against HPV types 16 and 18 which cause approximately 70% of cervical cancers, and against HPV types 6 and 11 which cause approximately 90% of genital warts.
