Unlikely to happen: That said, a woman in her late 20's would have been vaccinated against the more dangerous strains of genital HPV, right? We vaccinate all persons when they reach middle school age. If a person missed his or her vaccines, or only got the earlier vaccine versions that had fewer strains of protection, she can ask a primary care doctor about Gardasil-9 vaccine. The doctor can examine the vulva too.
