Is the 2-dose recommendation retroactive for children and teens vaccinated prior to 2016?

Yes. Any person who ever received 2 doses of any combination of HPV vaccines can be considered fully vaccinated if dose #1 was given before the 15th birthday and the 2 doses were separated by at least 5 months.
