Human papilloma virus vaccine protects girls and women, regardless of how they come into contact with the viruses. America is a very safe country, but unfortunately, "date rape" and violent assaults happen from time to time. Criminals do carry hpv viruses, and can infect their victims. Hpv vaccines are protective in any situation.

This vaccine has potential benefits for many older than the target age. It likely wouldn't be covered by insurance, but I would advise someone I cared for to get it.

Although hpv is an std, many sexual encounters occur in the passion of the moment and are not planned.
Then it may be too late as the vaccine seems to work better before infection, not as well after.
