    Yay! Just spoke with the Merck rep and she said that as of November 2009 Gardasil is available to men. While men are mostly carriers of the infection, it is estimated up to 80% of the population will have been exposed to a strain of HPV in their lifetime. So this is great news!

    The vaccine is recommended for boys under age 21. The goal is for everyone to get vaccinated before they become sexually active, because it doesn't do any good if you've already contracted the disease.
