Dear DR. i took gardasil after i was infected hpv and i took vaccine once over 3 month is it wrong or no?
| Response from Dr. Young
Since the Gardasil protects against four different important strains of papilloma virus, it is ok to receive the vaccination after you already have HPV.
The vaccine is approved for use in young people (male and female) from ages 9 to 26.
Hope that helps, BY
