A new study reveals the HPV vaccine remains effective for at least eight years.
Researchers followed boys and girls who received the HPV vaccine between nine and 15 years old.
After eight years, they still had the HPV antibodies, had no adverse effects from the vaccine and most had not developed HPV related disease.
However, HPV vaccination rates are only 33-percent and more than 4,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year.
