Yes: The hpv vaccine can be given from ages 9-26. It is such a wonderful tool used in the prevention of transmission of hpv, and hence cervical cancers, as well as other diseases and cancers. Keep in mind, even if you have been exposed to one strain of hpv, by getting vaccinated, you will be protected from other strains as well.
