Vaccine Schedule for Adults
The need for vaccinations doesn’t stop when you become an adult. Adult vaccinations, just like childhood immunizations, are important for lifelong good health. While some vaccinations are prescribed only for adults, others are for adults who did not receive the vaccines -- or in some cases, the illnesses they were designed to protect against -- in childhood.
WebMD presents this vaccine schedule, offering basic information about the most common vaccines for adults. In you are traveling to developing countries, your doctor may recommend others. On the other hand, if you are pregnant or have certain health problems or allergies, not all of these vaccinations may be right for you.
