    Who is allowed to receive the HPV-9 vaccine? Is the new dose strong enough for adults now? What is the age range for this vaccine? If vaccine is still being administered to only children, would NACCHO be making a stronger vaccine of the HPV for adults and when would it be made available for the general public?

    Secondly, is there a vaccine for Herpes? If so, is it available for the general public use?

    Lastly, Is it a possibility to create a vaccine that strengthens the Liver? To help those with Liver disease, no spleen and blood problems. Also to help the continuous flow of blood cleanse.

    These questions were sent to CDC, however, I was directed to contact the maker of vaccines for these questions.

    Regards,

    According to ACIP guidelines (http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm6411a3.htm), HPV-9 vaccine is routinely recommended for males and females at 11-12 years old, but can be given to males and females from 9-26 years of age. NACCHO does not make any HPV vaccines – HPV-9 is a Merck Product. Currently, there is no vaccine for herpes, and I cannot comment on tools to improve liver health.
