Infographic: Adults Need Vaccinations, Too

It’s not just kids who need protection against the deadly diseases vaccines prevent — grown-ups need to get vaccinated, too. Whether it is the yearly flu shot, a booster shot to maintain immunity against diseases (like tetanus and diphtheria), the whooping cough vaccine to protect the littlest loved ones from the infection’s deadly complications, or shots for diseases specific to adults (like shingles), vaccinations should be a top health priority for all adults.

Check out TMA’s latest infographic on adult immunizations, why they are necessary, and who should get which vaccines. The graphic is also available in Spanish.

Ask your doctor if you’ve had all the shots you need. Most insurance plans now pay for vaccinations at no cost to you.
