Answer

Finally, the duration of protection with these vaccines has not yet been determined. The available evidence suggests that immunity from infection with the HPV types covered by these vaccines will persist for at least 6-8 years, [103] but continuing follow-up will be required to determine whether revaccination will be necessary.
