The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved an expanded age indication for GARDASIL®9, Merck’s 9-valent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, to now include use in males 16 through 26 years of age.  “This is an important approval that now aligns the indication for GARDASIL 9 in males and females ages 9 through 26 to that of GARDASIL, and also supports the CDC’s HPV vaccine recommendations for use in males,” said Jacques Cholat, M.D., president, Merck Vaccines.
