Resources for Parents of Teens and Pre-teens

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), other medical societies, and CDC recommend teens and pre-teens receive certain vaccinations. Preteens and teens typically see their doctors or other medical professionals for physicals before participation in sports, camping events, travel, and applying to college. Any of these are a great opportunity to ask about which vaccines they may need.
