Gardasil 9 (HPV Vaccine)

Gardasil 9 is a vaccine for both men and women. It reduces the risk of getting genital warts by up to 90%, and HPV related cancers of the anus and female genitals by up to 89%. There is also some evidence that it could help prevent cancers of the throat and penis. The vaccine works by giving immunity against the most harmful types of HPV.

3 injections (one at first, then another at 2 and 6 months after the first injection)

How long it lasts

Research is ongoing to see how long protection from the vaccine lasts. However, at present, booster vaccines are not thought to be needed.

Most common side effects

Most patients experience no side effects. However, you may experience pain, redness, itching, bruising or swelling at the injection site, headache, dizziness, nausea, fever and tiredness. Any side effects should not last more than 2-3 days.

Rare but serious side effects
There are a few rare but serious side effects you need to know about before deciding to have the vaccine. These include: difficulty breathing, encephalomyelitis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, and bleeding disorders. 

Risk of severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis)

Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction. Symptoms can include fainting, shortness of breath, sudden drop in blood pressure and swelling of the face and neck. This is extremely rare and typically happens within 10 minutes of receiving the injection.

All LloydsPharmacy staff providing this vaccination service are fully trained in managing anaphylaxis.

Selecting a participating store

You will need to select the participating LloydsPharmacy store where you want to receive the injection itself. When you have ordered and paid for the vaccine online, telephone the pharmacy to arrange an appointment for your first injection.

About Gardasil 9 Injections

How does Gardasil 9 work?

Gardasil 9 gives immunity against nine types of human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is the main cause of genital warts, and cancers of the female genitals (cervix, vagina and vulva) and anus. HPV is transmitted during sex, or skin to skin contact with the genitals.
