HPV vaccine is a vaccine that prevents infection with certain species of Human Papillomavirus associated with the development of cervical cancer, genital warts, and some less common cancers. This vaccine requires 3 doses to be given over the course of 6 months (0, 2 and 6 months) and is highly recommended for female age 9 to 26 years old. Women above 26 years old are also able to take up the vaccine, however the rate of effectiveness is not as high as those within the recommended age bracket (9-26 years old).
