In brief: Possible
The protection is best after all three injections.
However, even one injection could infer some protection.

In brief: Possibly yes
Even people who get all three shots of the vaccine within one year will still get hpv infections.
The thought is that the vaccine will you clear the infection faster than non-vaccinated people, thus reducing your risk of cervical cancer.
