Much like children and adolescents, adults need to keep their immunizations up-to-date to protect themselves from diseases that can result in death or disability.
These vaccines include:
- Hepatitis A and B
- Herpes Zoster (shingles)
- HPV (human papillomavirus)
- Influenza (flu)
- MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)
- Td (tetanus, diphtheria)
- Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis)
- Varicella (chickenpox)
