1 doctor agrees
In brief: Women 9-26yo
Currently the vaccine is only approved by insurances for women 9-26yo, but i believe that it should be offered to all since 80% of us will have hpv.
Eventually it will be offered to men as well.

It actually has been approved by the FDA for men for three years. It has nothing to do with insurance. It is approved for Everyone 9-26.

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Everyone age 9-26
It is recommended for all boys/men and girls/women aged 9-26.
Ps - gardisil (merck's vaccine) is recommended for cervical, vaginal, vulvar and anal cancers and their precurosors as well as genital warts in women and anal cancer and precursors and warts in men. Cervavix (gsk's vaccine) is indicated for only women, and only for cervical cancer and precursors and warts.
