Were you looking for information about Gardasil? Gardacil is a common misspelling of Gardasil.
Girls and women (age 9 to 26) who want to prevent conditions such as cervical cancer and genital warts may benefit from Gardasil® (Quadrivalent Human Papillomavirus [Types 6, 11, 16, and 18] Recombinant Vaccine). Gardasil is also approved to prevent genital warts in boys and men age 9 to 26.
This vaccine helps to prevent certain types of conditions caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which can be sexually transmitted. Recently, the vaccine was also approved to prevent anal cancer, as well as precancerous anal lesions, in males and females age 9 to 26.
Although it does not protect against all types of HPV, it can protect against the four most common types of the virus. Most people tolerate Gardasil well. However, it is not suitable for everyone. Before getting the vaccine, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you may have and any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
