Seattle doctors rarely talk to adolescent patients about recommended vaccines, a new study reports. Patients in this age range should be offered vaccines for tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis, human papillomavirus and meningococcal disease, according to the study’s lead author, Dr. Rachel Katzenellenbogen of Seattle Children’s Research Institute. Dr. Jeff Wright, co-author of the study, discusses why teens may be missing out.
