In brief: Possible

HPV is a family of viruses.
There are vaccines with 2 HPV strains and 4 HPV strains. These vaccines are recommended before exposure - before becoming sexually active. Most sexually active people will get exposed to HPV in their teens or early twenties. The vaccine is recommended only up to 26 years. Using barrier protection is recommended for protection from many sexually transmitted diseases.
