Does HPV vaccination increase cancer risk in carriers?

People who are already carrier of HPV 16 or 18 viruses increase their cancer risk by 44.6% by getting vaccinated.
Or so anti-vaccination activists claim. Can anyone judge if this claim is true?

They refer to this document: http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/ac/06/briefing/2006-4222B3.pdf
I do find the number "44.6" in that file, but I'm unsure what to conclude from it.
I'm a 40-something male who wants to protect himself and future partners. I have a limited sexual history but will likely soon sleep with ladies who have multiple partners. In my country vaccines are cheap. I am concerned about side effects.
