Adult Vaccinations

Many people don’t realize the important role vaccines can play in keeping adults healthy. As a result, most adults are not vaccinated as recommended.

Vaccines help keep adults healthy. Each year, vaccine-preventable diseases kill more Americans than traffic accidents, breast cancer, and HIV/AIDS.

More than 50,000 deaths annually are due to vaccine-preventable diseases among adults in the U.S.

For more information and to find out which vaccines you need, visit the CDC Immunization web site.
