Absolutely: Receiving an hpv vaccine has absolutely nothing to do with you pleasuring yourself by masturbating. Totally separate and unrelated. Masturbate if you want to and don't masturbate if you don't want to.

Yes you can: You are 42 years old and not a candidate for HPV Vaccine But there is no reason why one can not masterbate
