Were you looking for information about Gardasil? Gradasil is a common misspelling of Gardasil.
Gardasil® (Quadrivalent Human Papillomavirus [Types 6, 11, 16, and 18] Recombinant Vaccine) is a vaccine that can help protect males and females (age 9 to 26) from four of the most common types of human papillomavirus (HPV).
This virus can be transmitted sexually and can cause conditions such as anal cancer, cervical cancer, vulvar and vaginal cancer, genital warts, and various precancerous genital lesions. Although most people tolerate this vaccine well, it is not suitable for everyone and can cause side effects (such as nausea, dizziness, and reactions at the injection site). This medication is administered by a healthcare provider and is given as a series of three injections.
