Adults: 19 and older

Children are not the only population that needs vaccination. Adults need vaccines to stay healthy as well. View the CDC’s adult schedule of immunizations (PDF).

Adults may be at risk for diseases and complications brought on by disease if they have not had the disease or have not been vaccinated against the disease. And even if you’ve been vaccinated, you may need to receive a booster shot to keep up your immunity; some vaccines, such as the one for whooping cough, do not offer lifelong protection.

Talk to your health care provider to make sure you are up to date on your vaccines as well as other adult preventative health guidelines (PDF).
