/Will sexually active people benefit from the vaccine?

People who are sexually active may also benefit from the vaccine. But they may get less benefit from the vaccine since they may have already acquired one or more HPV type(s) covered by the vaccine.

Few young people are infected with all four of these HPV types. So they would still get protection from those types they have not acquired. Currently, there is no test available to tell if someone has had any or all of these four HPV types.
