Adolescent (Pre-teen) Immunization Program
Adolescents may believe that they are done with their immunizations after childhood. However, it is important for adolescents to stay up-to-date on their immunizations. Teenagers may be exposed to environments where they are at greater risk for vaccine-preventable diseases. They may need to catch up on missed immunizations as a child, receive the annually recommended influenza immunization, or complete an unfinished immunization series.
