The two HPV preventative vaccine do not contain any live virus. Gardasil prevents 4 genital HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18. Cervarix prevents two genital HPV types 16 and 18. Neither HPV vaccine prevents all genital HPV types. You can acquire an HPV type from either vaccine.

Both vaccine have side effects…you can get these side effects with one injection or any of the 3 injections.

You will not acquire an HPV infection from taking one injection…and you will not receive full prevention from the HPV types until you recerive all 3 injection. Even after you receive all 3 injection you can acquire one of the other 36+ HPV types the vaccine does not prevent.
