Where to get Off Label Gardasil Vaccine in NYC
Jan 15, 2009

I am a female who is a virgin but I am much older then the recommended age to receive the Gardasil Vaccine. How can I get the vaccine off label. I live in NYC. I would like to start dating and I feel this vaccine will protect me. I am having a hard time to fine info. about where I can get the vaccine. I do not mind to pay. Thanks

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi,

Any physician can use a medication off label. Finding one who will can be a bit tricky. Gardasil appears to be a very safe vaccine and despite your being outside the recommended age bracket, I would have no problem immunizing you. I'd suggest you contact an infectious diseases physician. You can ask by phone if the office is willing to vaccinate you.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
