All adults need immunizations to help them prevent getting and spreading serious diseases that could result in poor health, missed work, medical bills, and not being able to care for family.
As we get older, our immune systems tend to weaken, putting us at higher risk for certain diseases such as flu, pneumonia, and shingles. Getting vaccinated can help keep you, your family, and your community healthy.
Depending on where you travel, you may encounter diseases that are rare in the U.S., like yellow fever. Getting vaccinated will help keep you safe and health while you're traveling.
