HPV Vaccine for Girls and Boys


Protect your kids from certain cancers and other diseases caused by human papillomavirus, or HPV. Get your girls and boys vaccinated when they are 11 or 12, or as soon as possible if they’re already 13 or older. The vaccine is a series of three doses. Be sure your child completes the whole series for the best protection. If you have questions about this or any vaccine, talk with your child’s doctor.Learn more.
