In brief: Not needed
Hpv vaccine is to prevent hpv.
Ask you doctor what hpv number is positive because vaccine only protect against 4 different hpv types. If you are not positive to those then you may benefit from it.

In brief: Yes
The hpv vaccine prevents against certain cancer causing strains of hpv.
If you are infected with a different strain it will still prevent you from getting infected with a bad strain. If you are infected with 1 bad strain, it will prevent you from getting a second bad strain... The vaccine will not cure your already occuring infection, though.
