One of the most important actions parents can take is to make sure their children are up to date on their vaccines. Following the recommended immunization schedule provides the best protection from serious, and sometimes deadly, diseases.


Preteens and teens need four vaccines to protect against serious diseases:

  • quadrivalent meningococcal conjugate vaccine to protect against meningitis and blood infections (septicemia);
  • HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccine to protect against cancers caused by HPV;
  • Tdap vaccine to protect against tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough (pertussis); and
  • a yearly flu vaccine to protect against seasonal flu.

To provide quality, cost effective health, environmental and emergency preparedness services to the citizens of Hampshire County.
