Drug Interactions With the HPV Vaccine

More Details About HPV Vaccine Interactions

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when the HPV vaccine is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Anticoagulants
People taking anticoagulants who are given an injection into a muscle are more likely to have bleeding under the skin and in the muscle. Talk to your healthcare provider about whether the benefits of taking the HPV vaccine outweigh the risks of bleeding from the injection.
 
Immunosuppressants
If you are taking immunosuppressant medications, the HPV vaccine may not work as well as it should. The HPV vaccine works by stimulating your immune system to make antibodies that will fight off the HPV virus. If you are taking medications that suppress and weaken the immune system, your immune system may not be able to make enough antibodies. This does not mean that you cannot get the HPV vaccine; it just may not work as well.
