HPV vaccination is recommended for all girls age 11 to 12, with “catch-up” doses for girls and women from 13 to 26 who haven’t been vaccinated (there are no booster recommendation as of yet).[*]
Both vaccines are available for females. Only Gardasil is available for males (recommended ages 11-21).[*][*]
At this time, protection against cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2/3 (CIN 2/3) is 5 years for Gardasil and 8.4 years for Cervarix.[*]
If your daughter receives an HPV vaccine at the recommended age of 11, protection will have waned by age 16.
The data collected from the above agency confirms approximately 0.0% deaths from cervical cancer under age 20.[*]
What is “one less” then 0%?
