Children 11- to 14-years old only need two doses of the HPV vaccine to protect against cervical cancer and other cancers caused by the human papillomavirus, instead of the previously recommended three doses, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Clinical trials showed that two doses for younger children "produced an immune response similar or higher than the response in young adults (aged 16-26 years) who received three doses."
Therefore, CDC recommends that teenagers and young adults, ages 15 through 26, who start the vaccinations later still stick to the three-dose regimen.
