There is only one type of cancer that is preventable through vaccination. The HPV vaccination protects against the most common forms of Cervical Cancer. There are two brands available, Gardasil and Cervarix. The vaccines are recccomended for women ages 9-26 but studies are underway to extend the age range and also to reccommend it to boys/men as well. The vaccine is given in three doses, Day 1, 2 months later and the third at six months from the first shot. The vaccine is widely available in most developed countries and most are implementing a vaccination program in schools and is administered free to eligible girls.  If its available where you are, it would be a good idea to consult with your doctor/clinic and ask about it.
