August – National Immunization Awareness

Immunization, or vaccination, helps prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases. To stay protected against serious illnesses like the flu, measles, and pneumonia, adults need to get their shots – just like kids do.

National Immunization Awareness Month is a great time to promote vaccines and remind family, friends, and coworkers to stay up to date on their shots.

Stay up to date on your Immunizations!

 

Here are a few to help you remember how often or when to get your next Immunization.

Tetanus booster shots – recommended every 10 years.

Flu vaccine – recommended yearly in early fall.

Pneumonia – Adults 65 or older. 

Shingles (zoster) – Adults 60 or older.
