Adults Up to Age 45 Can Now Get the HPV Vaccine
Adults up to age 45 can now be vaccinated against human papillomavirus (HPV), reducing their chances of getting cervical, oral and other cancers.

Despite that recommendation, however, HPV vaccination rates have traditionally lagged far below their targets. That’s still true — but the new report does suggest that rates are rising. Between 2016 and 2017, the CDC says, the percentage of teenagers who report...

It claims to treat things like itch and discomfort, skin dryness, “odor causing b...
