HPV Vaccine

GARDASIL: HPV Vaccine

The HPV vaccine GARDASIL helps protect against HPV, the human papillomavirus, which is estimated to infect up to 80% of people in the United States over their lifetimes.

For most, the virus clears on its own with no symptoms or consequences. They may contract the virus and pass it on without even knowing it. For others, HPV can lead to genital warts and cancers of the cervix, vagina, and vulva, and there is no way to predict who will be affected.

That’s why the physicians at the Cheyenne Women’s Clinic recommend girls and young women ages 11 to 26 be vaccinated against HPV. The GARDASIL vaccine helps protect them against two types of HPV that cause:

  • 75% of cervical cancer cases
  • 70% of vaginal cancer cases
  • 50% of vulvar cancer cases

It also helps protect them against two strains of HPV that cause 90% of genital warts cases.

The GARDASIL vaccination against HPV is provided in three doses within six months. It helps protect against genital warts and some cancers, but doesn’t treat them, and isn’t a guaranteed protected protection. For more information on the benefits of receiving the vaccine, make an appointment to talk to one of the physicians at the Cheyenne Women’s Clinic today.
