Human papillomavirus types do not replace others after large-scale vaccination
from Infection Control Today
Vaccines against human papillomavirus are now recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for both teenage boys and girls. The vaccine protects against the two most common types of the virus that cause cervical cancer: HPV 16 and 18. Is there a chance that the increased number of people vaccinated might result in an increase of other types of HPV that cause cancer?
