HPV is.usually a genital to oral transmission. Kissing may transmit it but it's felt that deep kissing would be required. You can still get the HPV vaccination.

It is possible to get oral HPV this way. Most people can get exposed and not develop a lesion due to their body',s immune response. So if both of you have no clinical lesions and you have already kissed her before you may continue.
