Immunizations for Life
Immunizations are an important part of staying healthy throughout your child's life. To stay protected, your child will need a yearly flu shot and the following vaccines at 11-12 years of age:
- Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap)
- Meningococcal (MCV)
- Human papillomavirus (HPV)
- Other vaccines if your child has a high-risk medical condition.
Keep your child's Lifetime Immunization Record updated and in a safe place. He or she will need this record for school, camp, college, and travel. Talk to your doctor, nurse, or clinic to make sure your child immunizations are in the Washington State Immunization Information System.
