Hi, I've got the first shot of HPV vaccine (Gardasil 9)...

Question: 

Hi, I've got the first shot of HPV vaccine (Gardasil 9) today. Can I get the first shot of MMR vaccine in 2 days time? I'm an adult female and missed out on these vaccinations as a child. Does it matter that MMR is a live vaccine and HPV is not live?

Answer: 

There is no minimum timing interval between a dose of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine and measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine. The HPV vaccine is inactivated and can be given at any time before or after another inactivated or live vaccine (e.g., MMR vaccine). Learn about inactivated and live vaccines here.
