In brief: No
The stains that the vaccine protects you from are the ones that cause cancer, not common warts.

It depends on whether it is bivalent or quadravalent. Types 16,18 without or with 6,11 http://www.cdc.gov/std/hpv/stdfact-hpv-vaccine-hcp.htm

HPV types 6 and 11 in the quadravalent vaccine protect from 90% of genital warts. Dr. Friedlander means it won't protect from other skin warts.

No, but it will help prevent 90 % of all genital warts since that many are caused by types 6 and 11 that are included in the vaccine gardisil.
The other brand Cervarix dos not have those types and is not indicated to prevent infection with genital warts.
