Immunizations for Adolescents (IMA)

Assesses adolescents 13 years of age who had one dose of meningococcal vaccine, one Tdap vaccine and the complete human papillomavirus vaccine series by their 13th birthday.

Why it Matters?

Vaccines are a safe and effective way to protect adolescents against potential deadly diseases.1 Receiving recommended vaccinations is the best defense against vaccine-preventable diseases, including meningococcal meningitis, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough) and human papillomavirus. These are serious diseases that can cause breathing difficulties, heart problems, nerve damage, pneumonia, seizures, cancer—and even death.2
