Adult Immunizations

Contrary to popular belief, adults require immunizations too! Some adults incorrectly assume that the vaccines they received as children will protect them for the rest of their lives. Generally this is true, except that:

  • Some adults were never vaccinated as children.
  • Newer vaccines were not available when some adults were children.
  • Immunity can begin to fade over time.
  • As we age, we become more susceptible to serious disease caused by common infections (e.g., flu, pnuemococcus).
