As of March 1, 2015, we are no longer providing adult immunizations or foreign travel consultations. Please use the Vaccine Finder to locate immunization clinics in your area.
Immunizations are NOT just for kids! Whether a young adult, middle-aged adult, or senior citizen, we ALL need immunizations to keep us healthy. Transitioning to adulthood brings us into a new world, bringing a different level of responsibility that we carry for life, including the need to help protect our loved ones more than ever.
The specific immunizations you need as an adult are determined by factors such as your age, lifestyle, high-risk conditions, type and locations of travel, and previous immunizations. Throughout your adult life, you need immunizations to get and maintain protection against: flu, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, shingles, pneumococcal, HPV, etc. Other vaccinations you may need include those that protect against hepatitis A, hepatitis B, chickenpox (varicella), and measles, mumps and rubella.
Vaccine-preventable infections kill more Americans annually, than HIV/AIDS, breast cancer or traffic accidents. Approximately 50,000 adults die each year from vaccine-preventable diseases in the U.S.
