Though FDA hasn' t approved of any HPV vaccines for oropharyngeal HPV infections, many experts do go on with the vaccines as it may help lower oropharyngeal Ca as well as will sustain herd immunity against HPV. So I don' t see any problem going on with it if patient approves.

Well apart from redness, swelling & occasional pain at injection site and Anaphylaxis, there has been some unproven rare reports regarding premature menopause. The only contraindication is an earlier Allergic reaction to vaccine, though precautions need to be taken in severe acute illnesses & pregnancy.
