Re: HPV vaccine indications

In addition, there is an assumption that at about age 26 a woman will be settling down in a monogamous relationship, which is not always true. A woman over 26 can benefit from the vaccination and not face any unique health consequences due to her age should she choose to get it. Some insurance companies may not cover the costs if the patient is over 26, which is one thing to consider. But if you ask me, peace of mind is worth the cost.
