Unhappy High risk Hpv types that are pre-cancerous and what can happen??

I have a question that I am very concerned about. I have high risk HPV strands either 16 or 18 my doc said. She told me that I don't have the strands that cause gential warts 6 or 11, but my question is can my strands develop into gentital warts??? If not can I get the vaccine to prevent those strands?? I am so scared and so confused!!!

High risk HPV (like 16 and 18) do not cause warts.

The vaccine is available for females aged 9-26, I believe.
