Immunizations are not just for kids. Adults need immunizations, too! Immunizations help protect us from serious diseases and illnesses. It is recommended that everyone older than age 6 months (including women who are pregnant) should get the flu vaccine each year before flu season begins (usually October through May). The tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis vaccination (Tdap) should be given to anyone who will be in contact with a newborn.
