Teens and young adults should be vaccinated. Early protection works best.
Children ages 11–12 years should get two doses of the HPV vaccine, given 6 to 12 months apart. They can start at 9 years old.
Children who start the HPV vaccine series on or after their 15th birthday need three doses, given over 6 months. If your teen isn’t vaccinated yet, consult the doctor as soon as possible.
Adult HPV vaccination is ineffective because more people in this age group are already infected with HPV.
Some adults ages 27 to 45 who were not already vaccinated might choose to get the HPV vaccine after consulting with their doctor about the risk of new HPV infections and the possible benefits of vaccination for them.
