Mandating hpv vaccination
However, until more information is known, pregnant women are advised not to receive the HPV vaccine.
In October 2018, the FDA approved Gardasil9 for women and men ages 27 to 45.
HPV vaccines are extremely effective at preventing infection by the HPV types they cover.
In a small fraction of women, these HPV-induced changes will develop into cervical cancer.
About 12,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year and about 4,000 women die from the condition.
