Thanks to vaccines, most U.S. children are protected against serious diseases such as measles, mumps, diphtheria, polio, and chickenpox. But what happens to that protection in adolescence?

Other vaccines lose their protective power over time, and teens and young adults need a booster to stay protected. Learn more about which immunizations teens need by taking this quiz, based on information from the CDC.
