Dr. Jones explains if a woman still needs to be screened for Human Papillomavirus/HPV after she has received the HPV vaccine.
Yes, absolutely. If you have been vaccinated you still need to go every year and get an annual exam because there’s a potential that you can pick up a strand of HPV that is not in the vaccine. The vaccine only covers the biggest, most scariest forms of HPV.
