FAQs: Adults 19+
Adults need to keep their vaccinations up to date because immunity from childhood vaccines can wear off over time.
According to the CDC:
- COVID-19 vaccine
- Influenza (flu) vaccine every year
- Td or Tdap vaccine
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a routine tetanus booster every 10 years for all people 19 years of age and older. People 50 years of age and older should receive the influenza vaccine every year. People 65 years of age and older should be vaccinated for pneumococcal disease. Also, some adults may need to catch up on missed or incomplete childhood vaccinations. Various other vaccines are recommended for people in certain age groups or for those who have particular risks. Adults planning to travel to countries where certain diseases are prevalent may need additional travel vaccinations.
