Over 15 years of monitoring have shown that HPV vaccines are very safe and effective. Like all vaccines, scientists continue to monitor HPV vaccines to ensure they are safe and effective. Dose #1: 11–12 years (can start at age 9) Dose #2: 6–12 months after the first dose Children ages 11–12 years should get two doses of HPV vaccine, given 6 to 12 months apart. HPV vaccines can be given starting at age 9 years. Early protection works best. That’s why HPV vaccine is recommended earlier rather than later. It protects your child long before they ever have contact with the virus. Children who start the HPV vaccine series on or after their 15th birthday need three doses, given over 6 months. Teens and young adults should be vaccinated too Everyone through age 26 years should get HPV vaccine if they were not fully vaccinated already.
