You don’t need to get all 3 doses of GARDASIL®9 from the same healthcare professional. But you do need 3 doses and to follow the vaccination schedule to get the full benefits of GARDASIL®9. 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.
If you know you’ll be away at school or somewhere else when it’s time for your next dose of GARDASIL®9, that’s fine. But think about setting up an appointment now – it will save you from worrying about it later. Plus you can make sure that your healthcare professional has GARDASIL®9 in stock.
