Preteen and Teen Vaccines

Preteens and teens are at risk for diseases and need the protection of vaccines to keep them healthy. The vaccines for preteens and teens are important because as kids get older, protection from some childhood vaccines begins to wear off and some vaccines work better when given during adolescence. There are many opportunities for vaccination, so take advantage of health check-ups, sports, or camp physicals to ensure teens receive the recommended vaccines.

This 30-second video from a cervical cancer survivor is a heartfelt reminder of why HPV vaccination for our children is important.
