Adults are not routinely recommended to receive HPV vaccine
Vaccination of adults aged ≥19 years against HPV is not routinely recommended.
However, some adults may benefit from HPV vaccination. When deciding whether to vaccinate adults, consider:
- their likelihood of previous exposure to HPV
- their future risks of HPV exposure
Many adults are likely to have been exposed to 1 or more vaccine HPV types through sexual activity. See Epidemiology.
