Adult Vaccines

You never outgrow the need for vaccinations, often called immunizations or shots. The vaccines you need as an adult are based on many things, including:

  • Your age
  • Your overall health
  • Your risk of getting certain diseases
  • Where you live or travel
  • What vaccines you have already had.

Talk to your doctor or nurse about what vaccines are right for you. You can learn more about immunizations/vaccinations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention off-site link and our Quick Reference Guide for Immunizations off-site link
