What are the recommendations for use of HPV vaccine in people age 27 through 45 years?

Catch-up HPV vaccination is not recommended for adults older than 26 years of age. Instead, shared clinical decision-making regarding HPV vaccination is recommended for some adults aged 27 through 45 years who are not adequately vaccinated and want to be protected from ongoing risk of acquiring new HPV infection.

Ideally, HPV vaccine should be administered before potential exposure to HPV through sexual contact.
