A 30-year-old male asked about a 26-year-old female:
she has had 2x cervical cancer vaccines, with the third one scheduled for 6 april. everyone is out of stock. what to do? is there a time deadline?

Still works if late: Research shows if the second and/or third doses are given later than planned, the body still responds very well to the vaccine and makes high levels of antibodies which protect against HPV infection. So she should get the vaccine as soon as it is available. Best wishes!
