Gardasil

Gardasil is a vaccine that can protect both women and men from certain types of HPV.

Get protected. Talk to your Adagio Health nurse practitioner about Gardasil and HPV today.

Learn the Facts.

Gardasil is a vaccine that prevents certain types of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV).

HPV is a viral infection spread through skin to skin sexual contact. HPV is a group of over 100 different viruses, with at least 30 strains known to cause cervical cancer. HPV will affect an estimated 75% to 80% of males and females in their lifetime. For most, HPV clears up on its own without treatment. But, for others, certain HPV diseases—such as cervical, vaginal, and vulvar cancers and genital warts can develop. There is currently no cure for HPV.

There is no way to predict who will or won’t get the virus. Gardasil can prevent most cases of cervical cancer in females, if it is given before a person is exposed to the virus. In addition, it can also prevent vaginal and vulvar cancer in females, and genital warts in both males and females.

Males and females between the ages of 9 and 26 are eligible for the vaccine. Adagio Health provides the vaccine for those ages 19-26 only. If you are 18 years of age or younger, you can be referred to the Vaccine for Children Program (VCF). There is a vaccine assistance program for those whose insurance does not cover Gardasil.

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a virus that causes liver infection and disease.

Learn the Facts.

Hepatitis B (Hep B) can be transmitted in a variety of ways.  It is transmitted when body fluids of an infected person, including blood, saliva, and semen, enter the body of someone is not infected. 

The virus can be spread through:
  • Having sex with someone who is infected with the Hep B virus (HBV)
  • Needle sticks
  • IV drug use where needles, syringes, or other drug-preparation materials are shared
  • At birth from an infected mother
  • Contact with blood or open sores of someone carrying HBV
  • Sharing items that contain body fluids or blood, such as razors or toothbrushes
HBV is not spread through food or water, sharing eating utensils, breastfeeding, hugging, kissing, hand holding, coughing, or sneezing.

The Hep B virus can survive outside the human body for at least 7 days and still cause infection.

Hepatitis B can develop into a serious chronic health condition and can cause cirrhoisis or liver cancer.  

The best way of preventing Hepatitis B is to get vaccinated.  Adagio Health offices provide the Hep B vaccination.
