Vaccinations for Teens
Immunizations aren't just for little kids - did you know teens need several important vaccines to be protected against diseases? Georgia law requires immunizations for children and teens in school and college. There are also new vaccines that may not be required yet, but are still recommended to keep teens healthy.
One of the new vaccinations you should consider is the HPV vaccine, which can help protect young women against cervical cancer. Click here to read more about the HPV vaccine.

We can help ensure your child has all the required vaccines for school attendance. Visit or contact your your county health department to find out if any new vaccinations are required or recommended, or for instructions on obtaining a copy of your child's shot record.
If you have questions about the immunization requirements, you may contact your county health department or your child's healthcare provider. Be sure to retain a copy of your child's immunizations from your doctor or health department in case of an emergency.
