The HPV vaccine is currently licensed for people between ages 9 and 26, and it works best if given before people become sexually active. It is used to protect against cervical cancer, which is often caused by HPV infections. In a study, women who received one, two, or the standard three doses of the HPV vaccine all produced antibodies against the virus that remained at stable levels in their bodies for four years after vaccination. - See more at: http://www.livescience.com/40909-hpv-vaccine-one-dose.html#sthash.RWVIZP...
