How can I still get HPV if I received the vaccine?

There are many different strains of HPV, and no vaccine covered all strains. There are three different vaccines: Cervarix, Gardasil, and Gardasil9. All three cover High Risk types 16 and 18 which cause 70% of all HPV related cancers. Gardasil also covers Low Risk types 6 and 11. Gardasil9 also covers Low Risk types 6 and 11 and High Risk types 31, 33, 45, 52 and 58. EverlyWell’s HPV test is for High Risk types 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66 and 68. Therefore, you may be positive for one of the types that your vaccine did not cover.
