  • HPV (Human Papillomavirus)
  • Scheduling & Administration

A 16 year old received the third dose of HPV vaccine 12 weeks after the second dose but only 4 months after the first dose. Should the third dose be repeated?

Yes. If an HPV vaccine dose is administered at less than the recommended minimum interval then the dose should be repeated. The repeat third dose should be repeated 5 months after the first dose or 12 weeks after the invalid third dose, whichever is later.
