Hi    At this age vaccination is of no use becoz by this age most of the women would have had their 1st sexual intercourse. Vaccination is done ideally between 9 to 21 yrs of age or atlest before first sexual intercourse. At this age getting tested for pap smear is the ideal one to recognize cervical cancer early
