Immunizations by Age
You may not realize that you need vaccines throughout your life. Adults need to keep their vaccinations up to date because immunity from childhood vaccines can wear off over time. You are also at risk for different diseases as an adult.
Immunizations by Health Condition
You never outgrow the need for vaccines. The specific vaccinations you need as an adult are determined by factors such as your age, lifestyle, health and risk conditions, type and locations of travel, and previous immunizations.
Some adults with specific health conditions should not get certain vaccines or should wait to get them. Review the charts below to understand the CDC’s recommendation by health condition and then talk with your doctor to make sure you get the vaccines that are right for you.
