Parents – you make sure your infants receive life-saving immunizations, but what about your adolescents? Are their immunizations up-to-date?

Public Health officials in Iowa recommend the adolescent immunization schedule  (en espanol) provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This schedule shows needed vaccines for those ages 7-18. Some physicians may vary this schedule to meet your child’s needs.

  • Adolescents need the following immunizations:
    • Meningococcal Vaccine (en Espanol) – to protect them from meningococcal disease, the leading cause of bacterial meningitis in children 2-18 years. Meningitis is an infection of the brain and spinal cord coverings. Meningococcal disease can also cause blood infections.
      • Meningococcal (MenACWY) (en Espanol) – This vaccine is required for all incoming 7th and 12th graders before beginning the school year. All 11-12 year olds should be vaccinated with a single dose of a quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MenACWY). A booster shot is recommended at age 16.
      • Meningococcal B (MenB) (en Espanol) – Teens, 16-18 years old, may be vaccinated with a MenB vaccine.
    • Tdap vaccine (en Espanol) – to protect your child from Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis, the Tdap vaccine can protect adolescents and adults from these three serious diseases. This vaccine is a requirement for all seventh graders to receive before starting school.
    • Human Papillomavirus (HPV) (en Espanol) – (Gardasil) is for both females and males between the ages of 9 and 26. HPV infection is the most common Sexually Transmitted Infection in the U.S. It can cause cervical cancer and other diseases in females as well as males (anal cancer, genital warts, etc.). It can be prevented by having the Gardasil vaccine.
    • Flu Vaccine – to protect your child from influenza. This vaccine is needed annually.
    • Varicella (Chickenpox) (en Espanol)
    • Hepatitis A (en Espanol)
