Welcome to the State of California 

Preteen Immunizations

Join us by celebrating Preteen Vaccine Week 

February 13-19, 2011!

The goal of 2011’s Preteen Vaccine Week campaign is raise awareness about California’s new Tdap requirement for incoming 7th-12th grade students, ACIP recommendations and promote the preteen doctor visit through multiple avenues such as schools, providers, and the media.

ACIP currently recommends that 11- and 12-year-olds receive these vaccines:

  • Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, whooping cough): For the 2011-12 school year, all students entering 7th through 12th grades will need proof of a Tdap booster shot before starting school
  • Meningococcal
  • Annual flu vaccine
  • HPV (human papillomavirus) 3-shot series
  • A total of 2 vaccines against chickenpox (varicella)
