Adult Immunizations Support Good Health

Thousands of adults become seriously ill each year from diseases that vaccines can help prevent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In addition to the COVID-19 vaccine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend all adults receive:

  • Influenza vaccine yearly
  • Td vaccine (tetanus) every decade
  • Tdap vaccine (tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough) once instead of Td vaccine (It is recommended that women receive the Tdap vaccine for each pregnancy.)

Your doctor may recommend additional vaccinations depending on your age, travel, health conditions like diabetes and heart disease, lifestyle, and career. These may include: 

  • Shingles
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Pneumococcal disease (Pneumonia)
  • Meningococcal disease (Meningitis)  
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Chickenpox
  • Measles, mumps, and rubella
