The Gardasil vaccine provides protection against HPV (Human Papilloma Virus). At the practice we give Gardasil-9 which protects against nine strains of HPV, which are linked with cervical, vaginal and vulval cancers in women, anal cancer in men and genital warts.
It is considered a safe and highly effective vaccination, and immunity lasts for many years, possibly for life.
The Gardasil Vaccine is recommended for both female and male patients between the ages of 11-14 years. It is usually given is usually given in two separate doses, with the doses being given 6-12 months apart.
Gardasil can also be given in later teenage years and adulthood, although vaccination beyond the age of 26 is at the discretion of your doctor. In these cases 3 separate doses are given, the second and third doses given 2 and 6 months after the first.
After vaccination, it is still essential for women to have regular smear tests from the age of 20 years, or 2 years after the first sexual contact.
