Get Your Vaccines

Adults need vaccines too. Staying up to date on your vaccinations not only protects you from contracting a number of dangerous diseases but protects your loved ones as well. Common vaccines include:

  • Flu. Flu shots are recommended annually for most people age 6 months and older.
  • Tetanus. The tetanus vaccine is typically included in a combination vaccine for tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis (Tdap) and requires a booster every 10 years.
  • Pneumonia. The pneumonia vaccine protects against lung infections. It is recommended that most adults older than age 65 receive two doses spaced approximately one year apart.
  • Shingles. The shingles vaccine is recommended for most adults older than age 60.
  • Pertussis. The pertussis, or “whooping cough,” vaccine is typically included in a combination vaccine for tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis (Tdap) and requires a booster every 10 years.
