Vaccines (immunizations) are the best way parents can protect infants, children and teens from harmful diseases. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) web site states that vaccine-preventable diseases can be serious and can cause hospitalization and, in some cases, death. This is especially true for infants and young children.
Live Well Community Health Centers help infants, children, teens and adults live healthy with timely vaccinations.
Adults need vaccines, too.
Adults need protection from preventable disease throughout their lifetime. What follows are important vaccines for adults:
Flu shots - all adults
Tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough or pertussis (Tdap) - all adults who have not previously received the Tdap vaccine
Pneumonia (pneumococcal) shot - adults 65 years and older with specific health conditions
Shingles - adults 60 years and older
Hepatitis B infection - adults who have diabetes or who are at risk for hepatitis B
