FDA approves expanded use of Gardasil 9 to include individuals 27 through 45 years old https://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm622715.htm

McKinley offers Gardasil for purchase and administration in ITC, the Immunization and Travel Clinic. Be aware that most insurance companies are not yet covering the cost of the vaccine over the age of 26.  Check with your insurance carrier first!

Insurance carriers usually follow the immunization coverage guidelines of ACIP, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, from the Center of Disease Control.  https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/acip/index.html  Until the recent recommendation of the FDA is reviewed and approved by ACIP, insurance coverage of the vaccine will be low.
