In the U.S., vaccines have greatly reduced or eliminated many infectious diseases that once routinely killed or harmed many infants, children, and adults. However, the viruses and bacteria that cause vaccine-preventable disease and death still exist and can be passed on to people who are not protected by vaccines. Every year thousands of adults in the U.S. still suffer serious illness, are hospitalized, and even die due to disease for which vaccines are available.
Like infants and children, adults are also at risk for contracting vaccine-preventable diseases. In addition to becoming severely ill, infected adults risk spreading these diseases to infants who are too young to be vaccinated.
All adults need:
- Influenza (flu) vaccine every year
- Td or Tdap vaccine
Other vaccines you may need as an adult are determined by factors such as your age, lifestyle, health conditions, international travel, and previous vaccines you have received. Learn more about what other vaccines may be recommended for you and talk to your healthcare professional about which vaccines are right for you.
