Vaccines aren’t just for kids. Even if you received vaccines as a child or young adult, you still may need additional ones, suggests the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as published on its vaccines.gov site.
Be sure to ask your doctor which vaccines are right for you. Vaccines recommended for older adults can prevent:
- Influenza (Flu)
- Shingles (Herpes Zoster)
- Pertussis (Whooping Cough)
- Pneumococcal disease (Pneumonia)
