One available: There is one available that has great promise.The hpv vaccine can prevent people from getting the virus that triggers cervical, esophageal, penile and rectal cancer. However, we don't yet have a vaccine for the others. There are so many different causes and separate vaccines for each may be possible in the future.Time will tell.
