Vaccine Schedule for Adults
Vaccines aren’t just for kids. Grown-ups need them to protect against diseases that become more common in adulthood. They can also protect people who didn't get the vaccines -- or the illnesses they prevent -- in childhood.
Experts recommend some common vaccines for most adults, but your personal needs may be different. If you're traveling to other countries, your doctor may suggest extra shots. If you're pregnant or have some types of health problems or allergies, not all of these vaccinations may be right for you.
