Fewer cervical cancer tests after HPV vaccine?

Women who've been vaccinated against human papillomavirus likely need fewer cervical cancer screenings, a new study argues. Just how often a woman needs a cervical cancer screening depends on the type of vaccine she had, the researchers said. Women vaccinated with earlier versions of the HPV vaccine — which protect against the two worst cancer-causing strains of the sexually transmitted virus — only need cervical cancer screening every five years starting at age 25 or 30, the study concluded.
