Your daughter should get the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine for protection against HPV, a sexually transmitted infection that can lead to cervical cancer in females.
  • The first dose for females should be given at age 11 to 12 (the minimum age for the first dose is age 9).
  • The second dose should be given one to two months after the first dose.
  • The third dose should be given six months after the first dose, at least 24 weeks after the first dose.
The series should be given to females at age 13 who haven't been previously vaccinated.
