Shots are not just for kids. Now that you are a teen, there are a few vaccines that are just for you. Some that may be required include meningococcal vaccine and a booster of tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis (Tdap). Human papillomavirus (HPV) for guys and girls and Hepatitis A vaccines are highly recommended. Also, talk to your doctor to see if you are up to date on all of your vaccines.
