Adult Immunizations

Many people think immunizations are only for children, but it is important to remember that adults need immunizations as well.  Some immunizations that are received in childhood may require booster doses as an adult, or may have been missed entirely in childhood.  Others are given only to adults. Staying up-to-date on all recommended immunizations will help keep you and the people you love healthy.
