Gynecology - HPV Vaccination
The HPV vaccine is available through our offices for any of our patients who wish to receive it.
- Girls at ages 11 to 12, or after age 9 if desired
- Young women at ages 13 to 26 who have not already received the vaccine
- The vaccine is recommended for any young woman who plans to become sexually active
The present HPV vaccine provides immunization against select types of HPV which are most strongly associated with development of cervical cancer. This vaccine appears to be effective in 85% or more of women who receive the full series of vaccinations.
