Highlight on VACCINATIONS 4 TEENS

Millions of teens across the country remain under-vaccinated. Family physicians are well-equipped to immunize their patients but we know that discussing teen vaccinations during annual appointments may present challenges due to other issues teens and their parents/guardians may be focused on at this age.

Highlight on VACCINATIONS 4 TEENS Resource Library provides support materials and tools to help family physicians and their care teams communicate the benefits of CDC-recommended teen immunizations to patients and their parents/guardians at these key appointments. The four CDC-recommended vaccinations for teens are meningitis, HPV, Tdap and flu.
