    Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
    Dear meoghe: You did not mention which of the two HPV vaccines you received for the initial and second dose. This is the manufacturer's information for Gardasil, which has been around longer:

    Gardasil--"If you miss a dose your doctor or other health professional will decide when to give the next dose" ..."Individuals are encouraged to adhere to the 0-, 2-, and 6-month vaccination schedule. However, in clinical studies, efficacy has been demonstrated in individuals who have received all 3 doses within a 1-year period."

    I would urge you to contact your GYN or clinic so you can get your third dose as soon as possible.

    Yours,
    Jane
