In brief: YES
Yes, but the peak risk actually starts rising around 13-14 yo and kids should be getting this shot at 11 yo now.
Currently the CDC says to get one at 11 yo and another at 16 yo.

In brief: Absolutely
It is particularly devastating illness that is easily transmitted between persons in close proximity, and appears easier in teens/twenties.
All should be vaccinated.
