The HPV Vaccine: Health 101

What's the recommended HPV vaccine schedule?

The vaccine is recommended for all girls ages 11-12, but can be given to girls as young as 9. The vaccine is also recommended for girls and women 13-26 who did not receive the vaccine earlier.

The vaccine is given in a series of three shots over a six-month period. The second shot should be given two months after the first dose and the third shot should be given six months after the first. It is safe for the HPV vaccine to be given at the same time as other vaccines.
