Question: Gardasil dosage

 paige87 - Mon Nov 02, 2009 11:23 am

I have had one Gardasil shot, and i can not afford the other 2 right now. Will anything happen if i don't get the other two shots when i was supposed to? Can i get them at a later time?

User avatar Hello,
Yes, you can get them later without a problem but to get full protection from the vaccine you should try to get the follow ups as soon as you can and you must have all three to get the full benefit.

Best wishes.
