The Office of Health Promotion in conjunction with the Baldwin County Health Department would like to offer GC students an opportunity to receive the Gardasil 9 vaccination on Sept. 28 at the Health Fair held in the MSU Lounge from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. GARDASIL®9 (Human Papillomavirus 9-valent Vaccine, Recombinant) helps protect girls and women ages 9 to 26 against cervical, vaginal, vulvar and anal cancers and genital warts caused by 9 types of HPV. GARDASIL 9 helps protect boys and men ages 9 to 26 against anal cancer and genital warts caused by those same HPV types.
Students can either get their first dosage or students who have already had part of the vaccination can receive the second or third dosage of vaccination at this event. Students who are interested in receiving the vaccine should contact University Health Educator Rachel Pope at firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept. 18 to ensure they have a vaccination reserved.
All students are welcome to participate in this event. An insurance card or copy of the card is required. Students who want the vaccine but have no insurance are encouraged to contact the Health Department Directly at 478-445-4274.
