What is the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine?

HPV vaccine is a shot that is given to prevent infection with human papilloma virus (HPV). There actually are a few versions of the HPV vaccine approved for clinical use. One version, called Cervarix, protects against HPV strains 16 and 18, (which together are responsible for 70 percent of the type of cervical cancer that invades the body). Other versions, marketed under the names Gardasil and Silgard, also protects against HPV strains 16 and 18, plus two additional strains –strains 6 and 11– that cause warts on the vagina and vulva, whereas a newer HPV vaccine, called Gardasil-9, protects against nine HPV strains.
