Is this the statement you were referring to in the question you linked to?
“It is important to remember that if you had one of the four strains of HPV before you got Gardasil, the vaccine will not eliminate that virus from your body. That is why it is important to continue to get regular PAP tests.”
Let us know if that is the statement that is confusing.
It is important for women to get regular PAP tests once they become sexually active because the HPV vaccine protects against most but not all cancers of the cervix.
