Why You Need to Get Vaccinated Even as an Adult

Why You Need to Get Vaccinated Even as an Adult

Contrary to popular belief, the need for vaccines does not go away with age. The protection from vaccines you received as a child can wear off over time and might not be able to protect you from adult-specific diseases like shingles. Moreover, your body’s immunity from certain diseases changes as we age and getting vaccinated is one of the safest ways for you to protect your health.

Factors like age, lifestyle, health condition, and vaccines you’ve already received during your life determine the vaccines you need as an adult. Vaccines protect you against seasonal influenza, Pertussis or whooping cough, Tetanus, Diphtheria, pneumococcal disease, meningococcal disease, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, chickenpox, measles, mumps, and rubella. You may also need vaccines to protect against Human Papillomavirus (HPV), which can cause certain cancers.

Depending on what kind, vaccines are needed to be taken either annually, every ten years, during pregnancy, or at a certain age in your adult life. You can talk to your healthcare professional about which vaccines are right for you.
