If a woman has had HPV infection detected in cervical cancer screening, can she still be vaccinated?

Yes. A woman with evidence of present or past HPV infection identified through cervical screening may be vaccinated. Recipients of HPV vaccinations should be counseled that the vaccine will not have a therapeutic effect on any existing HPV infections or cervical lesions.
