    It doesn't. No vaccine works.

    Do not get vaccinated. There is no scientific proof that the theory of vaccination is valid, yet there is considerable proof that Vaccines cause illness and death.

    It helps the body build immunity to four HPV types. HPV 6 and 11 commonly found in low risk visual warts and HPV types 16 and 18 found in 70% of cervical cancers.

    HPV is known to cause warts in the different regions of the bodies and cervical cancer. There are over 40 strains of hpv butt he two strains of HPV most commonly involved in cervical cancer are HPV-16 and Hpv 18. These are the two strains that are present in the vaccine.

    What the vaccine contains are the capsid proteins of the virus. When the vaccine is injected into the body, the immune system recognizes this as foreign and produces antibodies. This also causes the immune system to retain a memory of the infection. Then when the actual virus enters the body, the memory cells of the immune system recognise and immediately produce antibodies to destroy the virus, therefore preventing them from binding to our cells and causing little damage.

    HPV is a virus. The vaccine thus protects your body againist the virus by putting the almost dead virus into your body thus your immune system can fight it off. Then if you are exposed to the virus your body will have the experience and the defense mechanism to fight the virus. This is a really general definition, but what that last guy wrote is not true...it kills the virus, not you.

    Its an inhibited polio virus.

    your antibody's attach themselves to the virus and through a more deep cellular perspective that i will avoid saying.

    they create profile of the virus. when the actual virus enters your body. your antigens have like a police record and knows where it lives so it can go arrest it.

    i am being as general as possible so you can understand.

    if you wish to know more solve it with a search engine.

    thank you for the question.
