Recommended Adult Vaccinations

We're always so concerned about vaccinating our kids, as we should be, but officials at the CDC say adults need regular vaccine check-ups just like kids do!

Adults who never had chicken pox should get a varicella vaccine -- and all adults over age 60 need a shingles vaccine. It's recommended women under the age of 26 get the HPV vaccine, and people traveling outside the US need to get vaccinated against hepatitis A. 

People with chronic disorders of the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems should get both the flu and pneumonia vaccine.
