Expect Some, But Not All, Adults Over Age 26 to Get Gardasil 9
You'll hear debate about whether older ADULTS need Gardasil 9 to prevent human papillomavirus (HPV).
Gardasil 9 was FDA-approved last year for females and males up to age 45...expanding its use beyond patients 9 to 26.
Now CDC is advising "shared clinical decision-making" for Gardasil 9 in patients 27 to 45. This means these patients and their healthcare providers should work together to decide about Gardasil 9...instead of everyone in this age group getting the vaccine.
