Have you had your vaccines? Adults need vaccines too.

Below are a few of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommended immunizations for adults:

Seasonal flu (influenza)

  • For all adults
  • Needed every year

Tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (Td, Tdap)

  • For all adults
  • Needed every 10 years

You may need other shots too. People of certain age or with certain health conditions may also need:

  • HPV (human papillomavirus)
  • MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)
  • Zoster (shingles)
  • Pneumococcal (pneumonia caused by strep bacteria)
  • Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B (liver disease)
  • Meningococcal (meningitis)
  • Varicella (chicken pox)

Visit the CDC website for more information on the immunization details. Check with your doctor to see if you need these or other adult immunizations.
