Adolescent Immunizations

Immunizations are recommended throughout life – they are not only for children. It is important for adolescents to continue getting regular check-ups, that include all recommended immunizations. Certain immunizations are recommended specifically for adolescents at the 11-12 year old check-up, including the tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) booster, the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine series, and the Meningococcal vaccine.  Adolescents also need a yearly influenza (flu) vaccine and may need to catch-up on any childhood immunizations they missed.

Take the Adolescent and Adult Vaccine Quiz to find out which vaccines you need
