REASONS WHY ADULT VACCINATION IS IMPORTANT
Adult Vaccination is recommended to prevent infectious diseases. Adults need to keep their vaccinations up to date because immunity from childhood vaccinations can wear off over time. Vaccines are recommended for adults based on a number of factors like age, health, job, lifestyle or travel habits. Adult vaccination can reduce and prevent the health complications of vaccine-preventable diseases among adults.
Vaccination is one of the most affordable and safest preventive maintenance measures available to prevent diseases and should be part of routine vaccination.
Some of the important reasons to get vaccinated as an adult are listed below.
- Each year thousands of adults in India get sick from diseases that could be prevented by vaccines — some people are hospitalized, and some even die.
- Even if you got all your vaccines as a child, the protection from some vaccines can wear off over time. You may also be at risk for other diseases due to your age, job, lifestyle, travel, or health conditions.
- Traveling Overseas ? There may be additional vaccines recommended for you based on Travel Immunization schedule based on each country.
