Key words: Adolescent, Recommendations, Vaccination
The recommended immunization schedule for adolescents is reviewed. Catch up immunization of unvaccinated adolescents is required to ameliorate the efficacy of vaccination campaigns. Administration of booster doses of dT(pa) and measles is considered necessary to sustain immunity. Vaccinations for rubella, mumps and chickenpox are recommended for adolescents who have not been immunized.
