Adolescent  are to be immunized for three reasons i.e. 

1). To boost the immunity that is waning,

2). To accelerate desease control or the elimination effort,

3). To counter a specific risk.

Immunizing adolescents depends on which vaccines they have received as children. All adolescents should receive a tetanus-diphtheria pertussis booster, the meningococcal conjugate vaccine, and an annual influenza vaccine. Hepatitis B vaccine and measles, mumps, rubella (German measles) vaccine is indicated for all adolescents who have not been vaccinated previously. Varicella (chickenpox) vaccine is recommended for those not previously vaccinated and who have no reliable history of the disease. Girls and women aged 11-26 years should receive the HPV vaccine to prevent cervical cancer.

All adolescents with diabetes or chronic heart, lung, liver or kidney disorders need protection against pneumococcal disease and should consult their healthcare providers regarding their need for these vaccines.

Hepatitis A vaccine is recommended for adolescents traveling to or working in countries where the disease is common, living in communities with outbreaks of the disease, and living in states that have hepatitis A rates that exceed the national average. It is also recommended for adolescents who have chronic liver disease or clotting-factor disorders, are injection drug users, or are male and have sex with other males.

One of the worst scenario is to see that almost 90% people in India hardly knows about need of various types of vaccination required for both sex from 13 yrs age to 22 yrs.

Furt her most of the doctors uses the same old chart valid upto 12 yrs and very few new vaccination name appears in those immunization card. Even there are no columns and name of vaccination reflected beyond 12 yrs. I am still searching for a doctor or a centre in india who has updated immunization chart which should reflect till age of 22 yrs.
