Vaccinations for Adults

Immunizations are not just for kids. Regardless of age, all adults need immunizations to help them prevent getting and spreading serious diseases that could result in poor health, missed work, medical bills, and not being able to care for family.

Everyone should get a yearly flu shot, and since protection from some childhood vaccines can wear off over time adults should also be vaccinated against certain diseases on a regular basis. For example, a tetanus booster is recommended every ten years. If you are travelling internationally you will likely need a country-specific set of vaccines. At your next visit with your PCP you may want to discuss your vaccine history based on your profession, lifestyle, travel, or health conditions. Click here for more information on vaccines for adults.
