Older Adult Vaccines

Vaccines are not just for children. Vaccines are safe and protect you and those around you from diseases that can be prevented.

It is important that you receive your flu shot each and every year. The flu is more likely to cause severe illness or death in older adults.

You may also be eligible for vaccines against shingles (Herpes Zoster) and pneumonia (Pneumococcal disease) which are more common as you age.

It is also important to make sure routine vaccines are up to date for diseases such as:

  • Diphtheria
  • Tetanus
  • Whooping cough (Pertussis)

Staying up-to-date with vaccines can prevent the spread of disease to those who cannot be immunized including:

  • Babies
  • Young children
  • Pregnant women
  • Those with weakened immunity

Speak to your health care provider to determine which vaccines are right for you.
