Vaccine for Teens

The Baltimore County Department of Health strongly urges that all teens receive human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine to decrease their risk of developing cancer. HPV infection can cause cervicalvaginal, and vulvar cancers in females; penile cancer in males; and anal cancercancer of the back of the throat (oropharynx), and genital warts in both males and females. For more information visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. 

International Travel

Certain vaccines are recommended to protect travelers from illnesses present in other parts of the world and to prevent the importation of infectious diseases across international borders. Which vaccinations you need depends on a number of factors including your destination, whether you will be spending time in rural areas, the season of the year you are traveling, your age, health status, and previous immunizations. To receive vaccines for international travel, contact the agencies below.
