School-Age Children & Teens

print this page

A number of vaccines are recommended for school-age children and teens. As your child gets older, they are at risk for new and different diseases that can be prevented by vaccines. Also, some vaccines that they received at a younger age can wear off, so booster doses are needed to provide continued protection.

To provide your child with the best possible protection from disease, ensure that they get their recommended vaccines on schedule.

Learn about what vaccines your child needs and when, consent for vaccines, and how to prepare for a better immunization experience.
