Herpes question?

Patient: Hi I’m 17, I’ve had all three Guardisil vaccinations, I’ve had 2 sexual partners in my whole life. However I am a super hypochodriac and I think I have everything. So, to ease my nerves, I thought I’d speak to a professional. About a week ago, I kissed this guy and I am worried I could have contracted herpes. I know that sounds silly, but his friend has it and I’m just worried. There was no tongue involved, just lip movement. No other sexual encounters took place, just the kissing. So could I be at risk for oral herpes or any other STI’s?
