Schedule Of Administration Of HPV Vaccine In Adults?
Good Afternoon Doctor,
Hello rian.triy, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
The schedule for administering the HPV vaccine for individuals over 15 years of age or individuals with impaired immune systems is 3 doses. The second dose is given at least 4 weeks after the first dose and the third dose is given at least 12 weeks after the second dose. If you pass the time limit, then the vaccination does not need to be repeated from the beginning and the effectiveness of the vaccine will remain the same. What you need to pay attention to is that you should not carry out the second and third vaccinations less than the minimum distance.
The HPV vaccine is included in the conjugate vaccine and the Diphtheria (Td) vaccine is included in the inactivated toxin vaccine. Because both are not included in the live vaccine (live vaccine), the HPV and Td vaccines can be given together and there is no need for a certain interval or distance in giving the vaccine. You can have your third HPV vaccine at any time without the need for a certain distance from your diphtheria vaccine.
That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
