Vaccines are one of the most effective ways of preventing illness and they can keep you from passing dangerous diseases to the people you care about the most. Don’t leave your health care provider’s office without making sure you’ve had all the vaccinations you need.
Adults need shots as much as children do!
Vaccine recommendations for adolescents and adults are based on a variety of factors including age, overall health status, and medical history. The CDC's schedule of Recommended Adult Immunizations is available here. To help you understand what vaccines you might need, you can complete the Adolescent and Adult Vaccine Quiz online. Then print your results and discuss them with your doctor or health care professional next time you make an office visit. You can also use the Adult Immunization Scheduler to determine the vaccines you need according to the Adult Immunization Schedule.
