Vaccines for Adults

Vaccines are not just for children! It’s important for adults to also maintain immunity against certain diseases, such as tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis A and B, influenza, and more. Even if you received these vaccines as a child, you may need a booster because some immunizations lose their effectiveness over tie. Talk to your healthcare provider about which vaccines may be recommended for you.
