The specific vaccines that you should get will depend on your age, health status, occupation, travel plans, and other factors. It is best to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized recommendations.
- However, generally speaking, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all adults should get the flu vaccine every year, as well as the Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis) vaccine every 10 years.
- Other vaccines that may be recommended for adults include the HPV vaccine, the shingles vaccine, and the pneumonia vaccine.
- Additionally, if you are planning to travel internationally, you may need additional vaccinations depending on the destination country and your itinerary.
- For example, if you are traveling to a country where yellow fever is present, you may need to get the yellow fever vaccine.
Again, it's always best to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized recommendations. They can also inform you about any potential side effects and allergies you may have before administering any vaccine.
