HPV vaccine FDA approved for individuals 27 to 45 years old

Recommended Posts

Not trying to be party pooper but hoping to pass on important information so that everyone can protect themselves:

HPV is one of the most common STDs, see here: http://www.ashasexualhealth.org/stdsstis/hpv/fast-facts/

The vaccine is now approved for individuals 27 to 45 years old in the USA. Prior to this approval, it was recommended simply to adolescent girls and the vaccine was a key factor in preventing cancers related to HPV. See below.


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved a supplemental application for Gardasil 9 (Human Papillomavirus (HPV) 9-valent Vaccine, Recombinant) expanding the approved use of the vaccine to include women and men aged 27 through 45 years. Gardasil 9 prevents certain cancers and diseases caused by the nine HPV types covered by the vaccine.
