Abstract
Based on the December 2006 Fondation Mérieux International Scientific Symposium, the current state of adolescent immunization is reviewed with a focus on the policy and programmatic issues that impact the acceptability, initiation, and successful implementation. Key questions are identified with proposed strategies to help achieve successful adolescent immunization programs. The role of current vaccines targeted to adolescents, such as those directed against invasive meningitis, pertussis, and the human papillomavirus, is reviewed as well as their role in rejuvenating interest in adolescent immunization, and more importantly, adolescent health as a whole.
