In brief: Yes
Cervarix is another vacination against hpv 16 & 18 , gardiasil protect against hpv 16 & 18, also 6 & 11.
16 & 18 are associated with cervical, vaginal, vulvar cancer. 6 & 11 more associated with genital wart (not necessary cervical cancer). Cervarix seems to be more potent thant gardiasil for prevention of cancer (still both are very good). Get either one.

In brief: Risk reduction
The gardsil vaccine will reduce the risk (but not prevent all cases) of cancer associated with the high-risk hpv viruses.
This includes cancer of the vaginal, cervix, vulva, and anus.
