Expect Some, But Not All, Women Over Age 26 to Get Gardasil 9
You'll hear debate about whether women over 26 should get vaccinated to prevent human papillomavirus (HPV).
Gardasil 9 and Cervarix are approved for females up to age 45...but they're most commonly promoted for ages 9 to 26.
Experts advise "shared clinical decision-making" for HPV vaccination in women ages 27 to 45. This means these patients and their healthcare providers should work together to decide about vaccinating...instead of everyone in this age group getting the vaccine.
