Preteens and Teens: Ensure a Healthy Future with Vaccines!

During your back-to-school appointments, make sure your preteen and teen patients are getting these four vaccines to protect against serious diseases:

  • Meningococcal conjugate vaccine to protect against meningitis and blood infections (septicemia).
  • HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccine to protect against cancers caused by HPV.
  • Tdap vaccine to protect against tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough (pertussis).
  • A yearly flu vaccine to protect against seasonal flu.

Teens and young adults may also be vaccinated with a serogroup B meningococcal vaccine. Check the childhood immunization schedule for all recommended vaccines for preteens and teens HERE. #NIAM
