The Human Papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine is recommended for girls 11-12 years old, and for girls and women 13-26 years old and is also available for boys and men up to age 26 . The vaccine targets HPV subtypes that cause 70% of all cervical cancers and about 90% of genital warts, and is given in a series of three doses in a 6 month period. For more information from the CDC, click here.
