HPV Vaccine Question...

Jun 16, 2011

Hi my doctor wants me to have the HPV vaccine done but i think i have hiv and hep c, so would having it done cause me any harm??


Response from Dr. Frascino


Wait a minute; you "think" you have HIV and hepatitis C??? Wouldn't it be better to know if you're infected or not?

To answer your specific question, HPV vaccine will not cause any additional harm if you are hepatitis C or HIV infected.

Dr. Bob

my wife is negative.
