Maybe: Anal warts are caused by 2 of the 4 strains in the Gardasil vaccine.If you have never been exposed to the other strains, those associated with cervical cancer, it may be a benefit. However, as you age and the number of partners increase, the chances for prior exposure increase and likely benefit drops.This is something only you will know. Most insurers do not cover its significant cost after 26.
