Recommended Immunizations for Adolescents
Just like children and adults, adolescents need immunizations too!
Some vaccines – usually received in childhood – provide lifelong protection. Others may be recommended in adolescence.
Immunizations recommended for adolescents:
- Pertussis (whooping cough)
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Human papillomavirus
Contact your health care provider to be sure that your adolescent is up to date on all his or her childhood and adolescent immunizations. For more information about the vaccines your adolescent may need, contact your physician, nurse, pharmacist or local public health office.
