What if I’m late getting my second or third dose of GARDASIL®9? Off

February 15th, 2018 by gardasil9

Ideally, your vaccination schedule should be: 

  • First dose: At a date you and your healthcare provider choose.
  • Second dose: 2 months after the first dose (and not earlier than 1 month after the 1st dose).
  • Third dose: 6 months after the first dose (and not earlier than 3 months after the 2nd dose).

If you’re a few days late getting your second or third dose of GARDASIL®9, don’t panic. If you miss a dose, your healthcare professional will decide when to give the missed dose.

Alternatively, boys and girls 9 through 14 years of age may receive 2 doses of the vaccine. Your healthcare professional will determine which schedule is right for your child.

One way to make sure you’re on time for your second and third doses is to make your follow-up appointments before you even leave your healthcare professional’s office. If you think email reminders will help you get your next 2 doses on time, we can help.

Get the Immunize Canada app here , which can help you organize your vaccine information (for the whole family, if you have one) as well as remind you when to get your next 2 doses of GARDASIL®9.
