Vaccines aren't just for kids

 

While there has been extensive coverage regarding the importance and safety of childhood vaccinations, adults are often unaware of the recommended adult immunizations. Vaccines for adults remain among the most readily available and effective tools for disease prevention and lifelong health and are often overlooked. Adult immunizations go beyond the well-known flu shot, and can protect against many infections including pertussis, hepatitis A & B, pneumococcal disease, shinglesmeasles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, diphtheria, meningococcal disease, and chickenpox.

 

OPSO is pleased to provide these resources to help you understand the adult vaccine recommendations and protect adults from infections.
