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.
