Older Adult Vaccinations

Although many people tend to think that only infants and school-aged children need vaccinations, there are a number of vaccinations recommended for older adults in order to prevent a variety of illnesses that can result in more serious complications or even death. Older adults (typically 65 and up) are in a more high risk category for certain diseases, including influenza and pneumonia.
