HelloCustomer

In the US, the immunization schedule for the 11 year old visit includes a shot against tetanus and whooping cough (Tdap), a shot against a type of bacterial meningitis (Menactra) and for girls, a shot against cervical cancer or HPV (Gardasil). If your child's shots aren't up to date for their age, there may be others that they need to catch up, like Hepatitis B, Hepatitis A or Chicken Pox.

There is not a vaccine against Staph infections, but the shots that are due are all to prevent other types of deadly infections.

Thanks,
dr.nelson

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
