Information About GARDASIL 9

GARDASIL® 9 (Human Papillomavirus 9-valent Vaccine, Recombinant) helps protect girls and young women ages 9 to 26 against cervical, vaginal, vulvar, and anal cancers and genital warts caused by 9 types of HPV.

GARDASIL 9 helps protect boys ages 9 to 15 against anal cancer and genital warts caused by those same HPV types.

GARDASIL 9 may not fully protect everyone, nor will it protect against diseases caused by other HPV types or against diseases not caused by HPV. GARDASIL 9 does not prevent all types of cervical cancer, so it’s important for girls to get routine cervical cancer screening later in life.

GARDASIL 9 does not treat cancer or genital warts. GARDASIL 9 is given as 3 injections over 6 months.
