Many people are not aware that immunizations are needed throughout your life. Not only can vaccinations received as a child wear off, but people are also at risk for different diseases as an adult. For these reasons, it is important for adults to stay up to date with their immunizations. A patient’s specific need for vaccines will vary depending on their age, health, and job as well as lifestyle and travel habits.
In this module, we will review the importance of adult immunizations, standards for adult immunization practice, and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommended adult immunization schedule.
