Do adults need shots?

You're not a kid anymore, so you don't have to worry about shots, right? Wrong. Adults also benefit from vaccines. Talk with your doctor about the vaccinations you need and stay informed about changes.

To find out which vaccines you need now and in the future, check the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's website.
