In brief: HPV spread sexually

The hpv virus is a sexually transmitted infection and it is spread sexually.
The Gardasil vaccine does not give anyone the virus. It causes an immune response to protect against the virus. If your girlfriend has hpv she can spread it to you. Her having the vaccine can not hurt you.
