NEW – FDA APPROVES GARDASIL UP TO AGE 45

The FDA approved Gardasil, an HPV vaccine, to be used for women and men up to age 45.  Previously, Gardasil  had been approved only for ages 9 through 26.  The OCWHP applauds this new approval, which will allow more people to be protected against HPV and related cancers, including most forms of cervical cancer, as well as throat, anal, vaginal and penile cancers.  For more information, click here.
