In brief: Recommend ages 11-26

Hpv vaccine is recommended for all children at age 11 or 12 but is approved for use from 9-26 in both sexes.
It's recommended for all girls through age 26 and for boys through 21 years of age (through age 26 for men who have sex with men). There are two vaccines. Both reduce the risk of cervical and anal cancer but the Gardasil also protects against two strains causing 90% of genital warts.

In brief: Medically all 11 and

12 year old children benefit by eliminating infection with hpv 16 & 18, the cause of most cervix cancer, and boys pass to girls and girls to boys.
Also now, the hpv 16 infects pharynxes, and infection is easy, oral-oral (kissing) most efficient, but oral gential works too. Girls/young women are approved. Prudes are not considering health effects. A collison of science and religion.
