Adolescent immunization - Protecting youth and preparing them for a healthy future



Adolescent immunization - Protecting youth and preparing them for a healthy future



International Journal of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine 2(1): 1-6



Adolescence is a period of profound biological, physical, intellectual and neuro-cognitive growth and development, during which new social roles and responsibilities are acquired. Vaccination has the potential to avert acute and chronic illness during this period and to decrease the risk of illness, disability, and cancer in adult life. Here, the vaccines recommended for adolescents are reviewed, and the essential role of health care providers in providing education to adolescents about immunization is highlighted. Each health care encounter is an opportunity to ensure that the adolescent has the benefit of all available vaccines.
