Gardasil vaccine question

I've read a lot on the Garadsil vaccine but there's a question i have that i can't seem to find the answer to. Here goes~  How long after receiving the 3 shots of Gardasil will my daughter become protected from getting HPV? Does it take a week, a month?  She's 10 and i want more research before she takes the vaccine. Wondering if i have time??

Hi there
we do not know the answer to this question. the data from studies is about 5 years old. At 5 years - women are still protected. Only time will tell how long that protection lasts for
