Vaccine Schedule for Adults
You still need vaccinations when you become an adult. They're important for lifelong good health, just like childhood immunizations. While some vaccinations are prescribed only for adults, others are for grown-ups who didn't get the vaccines -- or the illnesses they help protect against -- in childhood.
This vaccine schedule offers basic information about the most common vaccines for adults. Your personal needs may be different. If you're traveling to developing countries, your doctor may recommend other shots. If you're pregnant or have certain health problems or allergies, not all of these vaccinations may be right for you.
