Hard to guess, but: Doubt that one's doctor would recommend Cervarix now. The latest Gardasil vaccine protects against 9 strains of HPV, whereas the Cervarix only protected against the worst 2 strains. A patient may ask her doctor about getting Gardasil-9 vaccine, and see what her doctor says. For young families with children in this era, the whole family will have been vaccinated or will be vaccinated.
