Update on Measles in Marin
Vaccines are not just for kids! All adults need:
Influenza (flu) vaccine every year
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease. Getting the flu vaccine as soon as it becomes available each year is always a good idea, and the protection you get from vaccination will last throughout the flu season. Although fall is the best time to get it, the vaccine usually continues to be available through early spring.
Td or Tdap vaccine
Every adult should get the Tdap vaccine once if they did not receive it as an adolescent to protect against pertussis (whooping cough), and then a Td (tetanus, diphtheria) booster shot every 10 years. In addition, women should get the Tdap vaccine each time they are pregnant, preferably at 27 through 36 weeks.
Other vaccines you may need as an adult are determined by factors such as:
- Health conditions
- International travel
- Any previous vaccines you have received
