It’s back-to-school time again! Are your teens and preteens up to date on their vaccines? There are four vaccines that preteens and teens need:

  • Flu
  • HPV
  • Meningococcal
  • Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough)

Giving your pre-teen the HPV vaccine Exit Disclaimer: You Are Leaving is the best way to protect them from HPV related cancers.

Cancer Detection and Prevention

Early detection of cancer is key. IHS is working to improve cancer screening among American Indians and Alaska Natives. It is also important to identify risk factors and take steps to prevent cancer. Talk to your health care provider about what you can do.
