In brief: No
Although it may work better when given prior to sexual activity, it still is effective given any time.
Current recommendations allow it to the age of 26.

Just like for girls, the recommended timing for the hpv vaccine for males is age12-26.
Hpv is just as prevalent in the us as in other countries. Hepatitis b is the other vaccine that might be helpful.The other sexually transmitted infections are preventable by using condoms every time, no matter who he is dating.
