CONSIDERING GARDASIL?

If you’re a young adult who is already sexually active, you may still benefit from GARDASIL.

That’s because even if you have been exposed to HPV, you many not have been exposed to the types of the virus covered by this HPV vaccine. GARDASIL could still help protect you against the relevant HPV types to which you haven’t been exposed.

GARDASIL may not fully protect everyone, nor will it protect against diseases caused by other HPV types or against diseases not caused by HPV. GARDASIL does not prevent all types of cervical cancer, so it’s important for women to continue routine cervical cancer screenings. GARDASIL does not treat cancer or genital warts.

 

Talk to your doctor or health care professional about GARDASIL.

By contacting your health plan directly, you can get the most accurate information about your plan’s coverage for GARDASIL.

Are you 19 years of age or older? Good news. GARDASIL is part of the Merck Vaccine Patient Assistance Program funded by Merck & Co., Inc. Find out if you qualify.

 
 

GARDASIL is a series of 3 doses. Remember to get them all.

GARDASIL is given as 3 injections over 6 months (the second dose comes 2 months after the first dose and the third dose comes 6 months after the first dose). Getting the first dose of GARDASIL is the first step in helping to protect against certain diseases caused by HPV.
