Why should I get vaccinated as an adult?
Adults are encouraged to update their vaccinations for many reasons. Childhood vaccinations may not sustain their potency through adulthood which makes adults susceptible to certain diseases. Also, adults that are in contact with infants and children are likely to spread disease in this population. It is important to know that some insurances do not routinely cover adult vaccinations. These vaccinations can be readily obtained at your local pharmacy or travel clinics.
