Vaccines for Adults

on 17 October 2017

Vaccinations are not just for children. Adults need to keep their vaccinations up to date because immunity from childhood vaccines can wear off over time.

You may also be at risk for vaccine-preventable disease due to your age, job, lifestyle, travel, or health conditions. 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. • All adults need a seasonal flu (influenza) vaccine every year. Flu vaccine is especially important for people with chronic health conditions, pregnant women, and older adults. • Every adult should get the Tdap vaccine once if they did not receive it as an adolescent to protect against pertussis (whooping cough), and then a Td (tetanus, diphtheria) booster shot every 10 years. In addition, women should get the Tdap vaccine each time they are pregnant, preferably at 27 through 36 weeks. • some vaccines may be required for you to travel to certain places. Protect yourself and your community by getting vaccinated before you travel.
