  • Historically, three types of recombinant, subunit particle vaccines have been used, only 9-valent available in U.S. (2017):
    • 9-valent (types 6, 11, 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, 58)
    • Quadrivalent (types 6, 11, 16, 18)
    • Bivalent (types 16, 18)
  • Vaccines contain virus-like particles (VLP) that do not contain genetic material, so they are non-infectious.
