The Meningococcal vaccine is given twice during adolescence, starting at age 11- 12 years, for protection against this serious bacterial disease. The second dose is given 3-5 years after the first.

The HPV vaccine series, 3 shots given over 6 months, is approved for ages 9 years through 26 years to help prevent cervical cancer, genital warts, and anal cancer. It is now recommended for boys as well as girls.

After age 6 months, the influenza vaccine is recommended annually. The flu vaccine is available as a shot.

A routine Hemoglobin(Hgb) test to screen for possible anemia is done at approximately 6 months and 12 months of age and periodically thereafter.

* *The cholesterol test is performed between 9-12 years of age. Recent medical research has shown that high cholesterol levels in children may predispose to the development of subsequent early coronary heart disease. Proper precautions taken early may prevent or delay this possibility. High risk families will be tested more often.

A TuberculosisTest may be done selectively to detect this disease. Please let your doctor know if a family member or a close contact of your child has been diagnosed with TB or if your child has traveled to an area where TB is common.
