Yes and no: I don't work for planned parenthood. They do have the vaccine. My understanding is that if you have insurance then you can get it free. If no insurance you might have to pay depending on your age and income. Just call them and find out more. Ooops... You said a "guy". I'm not sure about men and boys at planned parenthood. Sorry.

Absolutely: The HPV Vaccine/Gardisil/Cervarix is recommended for all men and women <26 years old for preventing the acquisition/spread of human papilloma virus (type 6, 11, 16, and 18), which can cause genital warts & cancer in men & women (cervix, vagina, penis, anus, and oral!) It won't affect your periods/fertility/sexual activity. Safe even if sexually active, if you have the virus, & when breastfeeding

Hard to say: You are listed as 48 yo which is outside the range 9-26 where the vaccine is approved. You are also not the gender Planned Parenthood caters to, but this may be different in some locations. The vaccine is expensive, costing around $ 200/dose the last time I ordered any and I would certainly not give it free, nor would I expect any clinic to do so unless you qualified for it.
