Diseases and the Vaccines that Prevent Them
For Parents of Preteens and Teens (7 through 18 years old)
Each fact sheet addresses frequently-asked questions, including what vaccines are needed for preteens and teens, when they are needed, and why.
Note: The Vaccine Information Sheet (VIS) is federally mandated to be given prior to the administration of a vaccine. The fact sheets are provided as supplementary materials and can be used in addition to the VIS but not instead of the VIS. A VIS still must be given when a vaccine is administered.
