This makes it particularly crucial for this age group as they are often sexually active and at higher risk of HPV infection or re-infection.

Secondly, individuals aged 27-45 should follow a 3-shot regimen at months 0-2-6 without the need for a booster shot. Studies have shown that the vaccine produces strong immunity and maintains high antibody levels, providing protection for up to 30 years.

Thirdly, while there is no specific season recommended for vaccination against HPV, it’s important to note that HPV can be transmitted through various means such as skin contact or sexual activity. Therefore, individuals should take precautions to prevent coming into contact with others who may have been infected with HPV.

Finally, contraindications toHPV vaccination include allergies to vaccine components, previous hypersensitivity reactions to the vaccine, active infections such as HIV or pregnancy can cause complications during vaccination.
