Protect your kids’ healthy future with vaccines:
As children get older, the protection provided by earlier vaccinations can wear off. Therefore, they will need some booster shots to stay protected.
During these years, the vaccines they will need include: 1 booster of tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (Tdap), 2 meningococcal shots and 3 human papillomavirus (HPV) shots.While some of these vaccines may not be required, they are still of great benefit to your teen’s health. This is also a good time to see if they need to catch up on any other vaccines like varicella, hepatitis A or others. You can ask the doctor if any additional vaccines are needed.
