Immunizations are important for all adults too. 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. Even if a person was fully vaccinated as a child, protection from some vaccines can wear off; a person may also be at risk for other diseases due to job, lifestyle, and travel or health conditions. Vaccines not only protect an individual, but they also reduce the chance of spreading disease to vulnerable people who may not be able to be vaccinated due to age or health condition; for example, newborns are too young to be vaccinated against whooping cough. Anyone in contact with young babies, including parents, other family members and childcare providers, should be vaccinated with the Tdap vaccine to help protect the infant.  Talk with a doctor or other healthcare professional to find out which adult vaccines are recommended at each medical appointment.
