Can HPV vaccine prevent us from HPV till we're alive?Is it possible to get infected from HPV by getting vaccinated if some HPV is alive in the vaccine

Not a living vaccine: The hpv vaccines contain material synthesized in a lab that recreates the material in the virus cell wall, it is not and never was alive. This material tricks the immune system into making antibodies against the cell wall as if it were the virus. Protection after a full series is thought to be for life. Its a bit to early to know for sure (only on market since 2006). ...Read more

If HPV can lie dormant for up to 20 years, does the gardasil HPV vaccine prevent it from ever appearing?

A decreased immune system could activate it so try to live healthy! ...Read more
