In brief: Yes
Gardasil is effective regardless of chlamydia exposure.
The vaccine will still allow your immune system to build immunity against the hpv virus assuming you are not infected with it already. Gardasil will not treat chlamydia infection.

In brief: Different bug
Gardasil is a vaccine to prevent 4 main strains of the human papaloma virus ( there are more).
Of those strains 2 are implicated in cancer and 2 in nasty wartlike growths on the labia or penis. It has nothing to do with chlamydia. It offers no protection from chlamydia, but it still helps for the hpv if you get it when you have chlamydia.
