Adolescents

Immunizations aren’t just for babies

Immunizations aren’t just for babies. As children get older, protection provided by some vaccines can wear off. Also, there are new vaccinations that can help keep teens healthy. Some diseases, like chickenpox, cause more serious illness in teens and adults. Older children also can spread diseases to people around them who aren’t fully protected from some diseases. For this reason, adolescents who spend time around young infants or older people should make sure they’re up-to-date to help keep their loved ones healthy.
