Yes...but: There are 2 strains of wart producing HPV included in the vaccine & from these you should have protection, unfortunately there are at least 2 other strains associated with genital warts.

I got my 3rd dose of my HPV shot last week. My arm was sore for about 5 days and now there is a hard lump where the injection wa i don't really know what to think about this but the lump is also sore when it is touched.

That : That is a common complaint after vaccination. Sometimes when we get a shot, a little vein will ooze, making a hard area deep in the arm. This will most likely resolve on its own. You only need to get it checked if it is very painful, red, hot, swollen or you have a fever. ...Read more
