What Happens If You Only Get One Gardasil Shot And Refuse The Other Two
Partial protection: Because the research studies were done with 3 doses of gardasil, it is not known how much antibody protection, and for how many years, a person would have with just one shot. There should be some protection. New studies are being done, especially for developing countries (due to the high cost of the vaccine), to see if just one or two doses are adequately protective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Poor protection: The protection created by series vaccines like Gardasil are tested & confirmed to provide a satisfactory level of protection for many years only when the series is completed . Failure to complete the series will result in some who are not protected or whose protection disappears over time. The series can be resumed with an extended delay & still yield benefits. ...Read more
I took one out of three shots of the HPV vaccine and i want to know what would happen if i never get the other to shots?
Nothing will happen.: You will just not be fully protected against hpv. It doesn't mean that you have a greater chance of getting hpv than you had before and it will not cause you to be at greater risk. You have done well with getting the first dose. Why are you considering stopping? Did you have some adverse reaction? If not, i would recommend finishing the series. Good luck. Jp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What can possibly happen to my daughter's health if I do not give the other two doses of the vaccine?
Which vaccine?: In general, it is important to complete the entire series of vaccinations for a particular disease. Not finishing can leave you still susceptible to the disease you are trying to prevent. Unless your daughter had some major side effect, i would recommend finishing. While many diseases in the us are rare, your child may travel as an adult or meet someone who carries the disease. ...Read more
Why 3 shots of Cervarix for HPV? Will this last forever and I don't need to get the shots again? And is there a vaccine for Herpes?? I have HPV 16
Immune stimulation: Research has shown dependable long term immunity with the three dose series while one or two would not consistently provide that benefit. Such is true with some vaccines, which push your immune system to work, but do not have the same stimulant effect as the actual disease.The infection would be a continuous trigger. No herpes vaccine is currently available. ...Read more

Can you still get HPV before getting the 3rd Gardasil shot? Do the shots work even if TA more time than the recommended wait time between them?

Shingles isn't fun.: Ask a few people about shingles and they'll tell you it can range from annoying to really painful with symptoms that last months after the rash is gone (postherptic neuralgia). There's no great predictor if you'll get a mild or severe case. And yes, you can have it more than once in a lifetime - i've seen people on their 2nd or 3rd episode. The cost isn't trivial, but shingles isn't either. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Please help? Is the shingles vaccine a one time shot or must you have one each year to be protected?
NoClinicalTrial Data: Good question but no clinical trial data exists. Merck, who did all the work to develop the vaccine, did the only clinical trial to date which compared incidence of shingles in people who received real vaccine vs. Just a saline placebo injection.
