Might be helpful: The hpv vaccine is helpful in preventing acquisition and long term carriage of several of the most worrisome strains of this virus. It will not treat or change the status of strains acquired before the vaccine is given. The 4strain vaccine includes the 2 most often found in genital cancer & 2 most known for genital warts. The target age for administration is 9-26, .

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.
