How is GARDASIL given?

GARDASIL is a shot that is usually given in the arm muscle. GARDASIL may be given as 2 or 3 shots. You must make sure you receive all doses in order to be protected.

For persons 9 through 14 years of age, GARDASIL can be given using a 2-dose or 3-dose schedule. For the 2-dose schedule, the second shot should be given 6–12 months after the first shot. If the second shot is given less than 5 months after the first shot, a third shot should be given at least 4 months after the second shot. For the 3-dose schedule, the second shot should be given 2 months after the first shot and the third shot should be given 6 months after the first shot.

Benefits of GARDASIL injection

In Prevention of HPV-associated cancers; HPV can cause many cancers and pre-cancerous lesions in female genitals and is responsible for the majority of cervical and anal cancers.

In Prevention of Genital warts (Skin bumps on or around the genital or anal area); HPV is also the main cause of genital warts.

This vaccine is intended to prevent these and not to treat them. It is normally given between the ages of 9 and 26. The vaccine works by increasing your body’s natural defense (immunity) against the human papillomavirus.

HPV vaccines are considered very safe and the benefits far outweigh the potential health risk. This vaccine has been studied in many thousands of people and shown to be highly effective in reducing HPV infections.
