As an adult, it is important to stay up to date with vaccines to lower your chances of getting sick. There are vaccines recommended for all adults, and some vaccines are needed especially if you are pregnant, have diabetes or other chronic conditions, or if you are a smoker. Vaccines are available from your primary care provider, OB-GYN, or local pharmacy. Learn more about the vaccines adults should have and the diseases they prevent.
