9-26yrs old: It is currently recommended for all men and women from as early as 9 years old to 26 years of age. Should prevent a large percentage of hpv disease and thus many cases of cancer.

Most people: It is currently approved and recommended for men and women ages 9-26. The chances of catching hpv the first time you have sex is almost 50% if your partner is not a virgin so it's best to get the hpv vaccine before you become sexually active.
