In girls and women 9 to 45 years of age, it helps prevent:
- Cervical, vulvar, vaginal and anal cancers
- Abnormal and precancerous cervical, vaginal. vulvar and anal lesions
- Genital warts
- HPV infection
In boys and men 9 to 26 years of age, GARDASIL 9 helps prevent
- Anal cancer and precancerous anal lesions

GARDASIL 9, helps prevent, but does not treat these diseases. GARDASIL 9 only protects against diseases caused by the nine types covered by the vaccine. GARDASL 9 works best when given before you or your child has become infected with HPV. The GARDASIL 9 vaccine:
Does not remove the need for cervical cancer screening; women should still get routine cervical cancer screening
Does not protect against disease that is caused by other types of HPV, other viruses or bacteria.
How GARDASIL 9 is given
GARDASIL 9 is given as an injection into the muscle in your arm or leg. Each dose of GARDASIL is 0.5 mL. You or your child will receive three doses of the vaccine. Ideally the doses are given as:
Dose 1: at a date you and your doctor or health care provider choose
Dose 2: 2 months after the first dose (not earlier than one month after the first dose)
Dose 3: 6 months after the first dose (not earlier that 3 months after the second dose)
All three doses should be given within a 1 year period. Make sure that you or your child gets the complete vaccine series. This allows you or your child to get the full benefits of GARDASIL 9.
