Should males get the HPV vaccine and the benefits from the vaccine?
Yes! No matter what gender you are, you’ll benefit from the HPV vaccine.
Many people know that the HPV vaccine prevents cervical cancer, which is why it’s so important for people with a cervix to get the vaccine. But everyone can benefit from the vaccine’s power to prevent genital warts and some cancers of the mouth, throat, penis, and anus.
And when you get the vaccine, you’re a lot less likely to spread the dangerous kinds of HPV to other people. Get vaccinated at your nearest Planned Parenthood health center.
