Vaccines at 7 to 10 Years
What vaccines will my 7-10 year old get?
- Influenza (Flu)
Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every year.
Although recommended for children ages 11-12, the HPV vaccine can be given as early as 9 to help protect both girls and boys from HPV infection and cancers caused by HPV.
You can take advantage of any visit to your child’s doctor to get recommended vaccines for your child, including sports physicals or annual checkups before the school year.
CDC, American Academy of Family Physicians and American Academy of Pediatrics strongly recommend children receive all vaccines according to the recommended vaccine schedule.

Vaccines your child may have missed
Find your child’s personal immunization record and bring it to your appointment. An up-to-date record tells your doctor exactly what shots your child has already received.
If your child missed a vaccine, now is a good time for your child to catch up. Make an appointment for your child to get caught up if they haven’t received vaccines to protect against any of the following diseases:
- Tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough (pertussis) (Tdap)
- Hepatitis A (HepA)
- Hepatitis B (HepB)
- Polio (IPV)
- Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)
- Chickenpox (Varicella)
