try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

According to the info I've read, the end result is that the vaccine only prevents certain strains of HPV--definitely not blanket protection. And it doesn't prevent cervical cancer, just those specific strains of HPV.

But that's exactly what Gardasil is advertised to do. Merck has never said otherwise . . .

The ads say "does not treat cervical cancer", but the caveat is hidden in amongst all the "may help" and "may prevent" and all the may this and may that. They definitely have a good ad guy.
