August is National Immunization Awareness Month

You never outgrow the need for immunizations. Being healthy means the same thing for all of us—getting and staying well so we can lead full, active lives. That means we need the tools and information to make healthy choices and prevent illnesses. The specific immunizations you need as an adult are determined by factors such as your age, lifestyle, risk conditions, travel, and previous vaccines. Talk to your doctor about what is recommended for you.
