Patient Education and Resources
Newly Updated! Adolescent Immunizaton Tip Sheet: Now in English and Spanish
The Adolescent Health: Immunization Tip Sheet is a helpful handout for healthcare providers to use to communicate important immunization information to their adolescent patients during tele-health visits, yearly exams (sports physicals and school physicals), and routine office appointments. The patient education Tip Sheet is available on the NPHF website in both English and Spanish versions. It includes information for recommended immunizations for adolescents, common responses to immunizations, and what an adolescent should do if there is a response. It also includes helpful hints for making good healthcare choices, using six “S” words for adolescent health: Sleep, Stress, Safety, Sex, Support and Say No.

Providers are encouraged to download, print, and review the Immunization Tip Sheet with their patients during their tele-health or office visits with adolescents.
