GARDASIL FAQs

Are you considering the GARDASIL vaccine?

Here is some information about the GARDASIL shot to help you make an informed choice and protect your health.

GARDASIL is a vaccine that helps protect against four types of human papillomavirus, also known as HPV, of which two types cause 70% of cervical cancer cases and two types that cause 90% of genital warts cases.

  • GARDASIL is for girls and young women between the ages of 9 and 26 years old.
  • GARDASIL is not for women who are pregnant.
  • GARDASIL does not treat cervical cancer or genital warts.
  • GARDASIL is given as three injections over a span of 6 months.

The side effects of GARDASIL can include pain, swelling, itching, bruising, and redness at the injection site, headache, fever, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, and fainting.

GARDASIL may not fully protect everyone and does not prevent all types of cervical cancer, so it’s important to continue to have routine pap smears each year.

If you're already sexually active, you may still benefit from GARDASIL. That's because even if you have been exposed to HPV, it's unlikely that you have been exposed to all the types of the virus covered by this cervical cancer vaccine. That means GARDASIL could still help guard you against another type of the HPV virus.

You cannot get HPV or any disease caused by HPV from GARDASIL because there is no live virus in the vaccine.
