Buy Cervarix for female patients to help prevent cervical cancer. This vaccine is intended to help prevent HPV or human papillomavirus which can sometimes lead to cervical and anal cancers, as well as other cancers of the vulva or vagina.
Who are the best candidates?
Cervarix is intended for use on females aged 9 to 25, in order to prevent certain cancers that are caused by types 16 and 18 of HPV. Patients who have already tested positive for HPV can still take this vaccine.
Ailments targeted with Cervarix
The medication is used to prevent HPV which causes certain cancers of the vulva, vagina, and the cervix. This vaccine, however, will not treat any HPV-related cancers, and won’t remove an HPV infection either.
How does Cervarix work?
70% of cervical cancers and 90% of anal cancers are causes by types 16 and 18 of HPV. When a patient is injected with the Cervarix vaccine, the immune system is able to create antibodies which fight against the L1 proteins, which are proteins that make up the virus shell or capsid. Because the body has already been exposed to the vaccine, if ever the patient does get infected with the virus, the immune system is now able to create antibodies that move quickly and efficiently, helping protect against the disease caused by the aforementioned virus.
Before taking the medicine
Patients should no longer take a booster dose if they have displayed previous allergic reactions caused by the first shot. To ensure Cervarix is safe for the patient, they should tell the doctor if they have allergies to latex rubber, have a weak immune system, or are being treated with steroids, cancer medicines, or other medication that has been known to weaken the immune system.
The medicine is injected into the muscle of the upper arm. The vaccine is given in a series of three, with the first dose happening q month before the second one, and the third dose being applied 6 months after the 2nd dose. The full gamut of doses is recommended for maximum protection from the disease.
Patients who might have severe allergic reactions caused by Cervarix should not take the vaccine. For patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding, caution must be taken when getting this vaccine, and should be thoroughly discussed with the doctor before application. Also, patients below 9 years old should not take this vaccine.
Other Side Effects
Although there is still a very minimal risk for infection with procedures like this, it is extremely low when doctors follow thorough aseptic practices. These are some of the more common side effects when using this product:
- Pain, swelling, redness
- Joint or muscle pain
- Swollen glands
- Nausea, diarrhea, stomach pain

Patients should immediately contact the doctor if they have missed a dose of the vaccine. Any restrictions on beverage, food, or activity should be discussed and is totally up to the discretion of the doctor.

Cervarix has shown to be the more effective vaccine compared to its comparator when it comes to stopping abnormal cell growth in the cervix. After an average of 39 months since injection, only 4 out of 7000 women showed precancerous lesions in the cervix linked to HPV types 16 and 18.
