Vaccines (shots) help prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases. National Immunization Awareness Month is the perfect time to promote vaccines and remind family, friends and co-workers to get caught up on their shots.
Important Immunization Information
- Everyone age 6 months and older needs a seasonal flu shot every year.
- Specific ages need certain shots. For immunization schedules for people of all ages visit http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/
- All adults need a booster shot every 10 years to help protect against tetanus and diphtheria.
Talk to your family doctor to make sure everyone receives the shots that they need. For more information visit http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/ Source: US Department of Health and Human Services
