Are your teenagers up-to-date on their vaccines?

In addition to most of the childhood immunizations, a few vaccines are given to pre-teens and teens to protect them against tetanus, pertussis, HPV, and meningococcal disease, including:

  • Tdap - booster to protect against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis
  • HPV - the human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV2, HPV4, or HPV9)
  • MCV4 - vaccine that protects against four strains of meningococcal bacteria
  • MenB - new vaccine that protects against additional B strain of meningococcal bacteria
