Abstract

New vaccines are being developed that will be recommended for adolescents Adolescence is a time period when adolescent-parent dynamics change and when adolescents may be confronted with increasing opportunities to engage in risk-taking behaviors such as sexual behavior and substance use. Despite clear recommendations regarding preventative counseling, many adolescents do not receive adequate preventive care. In this manuscript, we provide suggestions as to how a new vaccination schedule can be used to enhance preventative services to both adolescents and their parents.
