Maybe. Maybe not.: Nobody really knows. That's why people should be sure they got the Gardasil-9 vaccine. Then, they get their regular check-ups with their primary care doctors, who can usually check for warts. If suspecting warts or going for follow-up after wart treatment, do set a separate appointment. Doctors generally are not given enough time to do all that and still do a good check-up at a check-up visit.
