Beverly asks:

Is it true that some women diagnosed with HPV can also get the vaccine to prevent them from getting other strains?

Yes, it is true that women who have been exposed to HPV may still get some benefit from the cervical cancer vaccine.  The maximum benefit is achieved when the vaccine is administered prior to any HPV exposure.  The vaccine is approved for women between the ages of 9 and 26.
