Adult Immunizations



Term: 2010
Published: September 17, 2012
Revised: February 21, 2014

All adults require immunizations for influenza and tetanus and eventually require immunizations for herpes zoster and pneumococcal disease.  Adults may additionally require immunizations for hepatitis B, hepatitis A, human papilloma virus, measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, and meningococcal disease.  To help physicians provide appropriate immunizations to their adult patients, this self-study activity provides information on priority populations, initial vaccination, and revaccination regarding each of these common immunizations.  The first three pages of guideline summarize initial vaccination and revaccination.
