Did you know that female and males between the ages of 9 and 26 are susceptible to 4 types of the Human Papilloma Virus?
GARDASIL is the only HPV vaccine that helps protect against the 4 types of HPV.
So, take advantage of getting the vaccine at the Student Health Center today.
- GARDASIL helps protect against 2 types of HPV that cause about 75% of cervical cancer cases, and 2 more types that cause about 90% of genital warts cases.
- In boys and young men between ages 9 to 26, GARDASIL helps protect against approximately 90% of genital warts cases.
- GARDASIL also helps protect girls and young women ages 9 to 26 against approximately 70% of vaginal cancer cases and up to 50% of vulvar cancer cases.
GARDASIL is given as 3 injections over 6 months and may not fully protect everyone, nor will it protect against diseases caused by other HPV types or against diseases not caused by HPV.
The vaccine does not prevent all types of cervical cancer, so it’s important for women to continue routine cervical cancer screenings. GARDASIL does not treat cancer or genital warts.
Anyone who is allergic to the ingredients of GARDASIL, including those severely allergic to yeast, should not receive the vaccine. GARDASIL is not for women who are pregnant.
