/Should people be screened before getting vaccinated?

No. People do not need to get an HPV test or PAP test to find out if they should get the vaccine. An HPV test or a PAP test can tell that a person may have HPV, but these tests cannot tell the specific HPV type(s). Even people with one HPV type could get protection from the other vaccine HPV types they have not yet acquired.
