Immunizations for Adolescents
Fairfield Service Center, 1295 West Fairfield Drive, Pensacola, Florida 32501
Prepare for Adolescent Milestones
Think your teens are social? As your teen’s social world grows, so does his or her risk for exposure to vaccine-preventable illnesses like meningitis, whooping cough (pertussis), and HPV.
Be Ready for 7th Grade! Tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (Tdap) immunization is required for all students entering the 7th grade.
Don’t wait and get caught in the “Back-to-School” rush. Parents can schedule adolescent vaccination appointments once children are eleven years old to complete their middle school requirement.
Get your Teen Vaccine! At 16 years old, Meningococcal and influenza vaccinations are advised, along with any previously-recommended vaccine doses or boosters that may have been missed.
Graduating from High School this Year? Getting vaccinations while still in high school can get students caught up on shots, going to college. All vaccinations are free to eligible teens until their 19th birthday!
