HPV infection causes practically all cervical cancers, 90% of cancers of the anus, and 40% of cancers of the vagina, vulva, and penis. A vaccine against the most common cancer-causing types of HPV was first licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2006. In 2007, the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended routine HPV vaccination, using a three-dose series, for females aged 9-26 years. In 2009, the ACIP released guidance stating that males aged 9-26 years could also get the HPV vaccine. In 2011, the ACIP replaced this guidance statement with a recommendation for routine HPV vaccination of males aged 9-26 years.
