1. Playing It Safe

Immunizations

This chart shows vaccines to get between ages 11 and 24, provided recommended childhood vaccines have already been given. Guidelines may change. For updates, contact your health care provider, your school, and the CDC National Immunization Program at 800.CDC.INFO (232.4636) or at www.cdc.gov/nip.


Also, before you travel to other countries, find out if you need certain vaccines. Do this several months before you plan on traveling to allow enough time to get required vaccines. Get information from the CDC Travelers' Information Line at 877.394.8747 or at the www.cdc.gov/travel Web site. Discuss your needs with your health care provider.
