Why Adults Need Vaccines

Vaccinations are used to protect yourself and the people around you from serious diseases, but did you know it is just as important for adults to get vaccinations as it is for children?

The type of vaccinations you need as an adult can vary depending on your age, lifestyle, travel plans, health conditions and medical history. The most common vaccinations are for shingles, the flu, tetanus, whooping cough, and human papillomavirus.

The safest way to protect your health is immunization so ask your doctor today what vaccines are right for you. The side affects are generally mild and most health insurance plans cover recommended vaccines.
