What is meant by gender neutral gardasil vaccine. Is it different from earlier one ?
Hello, What is meant by gender neutral gardasil vaccine. Is it different from earlier one ? I am 17 years old. I need to get information on this. Please leave your comments.
@sampriti The vaccine was originally recommended only for girls and young women and were subsequently broadened to include boys and young men. MSD Pharmaceuticals India on Wednesday launched India’s first gender-neutral Human Papillomavirus or HPV Vaccine, which is expected to help reduce HPV-related disease burden among both girls and boys. Cervical cancer can be prevented by vaccines if they are given before girls or women are exposed to HPV. Once someone has been exposed to HPV, the vaccine may not be as effective. The HPV vaccine can also prevent vaginal and vulvar cancer. The vaccine can prevent genital warts, anal cancers, and mouth, head, neck, throat, head cancers in women and men. In addition, vaccinating boys can also help to protect girls from the virus by possibly decreasing transmission.
