Is there a HPV vaccine?


Yes, there is a vaccine available for HPV (human papillomavirus). The HPV vaccine is highly effective in preventing infection with certain strains of the virus that can cause cervical, anal, and other types of cancers. The vaccine is recommended for both males and females, typically starting around the age of 11 or 12, before they become sexually active. The HPV vaccine is usually given in a series of two or three doses over a period of several months, depending on the age of the recipient. It is important to note that while the HPV vaccine can greatly reduce the risk of HPV-related cancers, it does not protect against all types of HPV or other sexually transmitted infections.
