Why You Need Vaccines As An Adult?

Because immunity from childhood vaccine can wear off over time. As an adult you are at risk of different diseases. Vaccination is one of the most convenient and safest preventive care measures available. Depending on your age, health conditions, job, lifestyle or travel habits, you may need different vaccines.

Reasons to Vaccine

Vaccines have greatly reduced or eliminated many infectious diseases that once routinely killed or threaten many people. These viruses and bacteria that cause serious diseases still exist and you may be the potential victim.

  • Vaccines can lower your chance of getting certain diseases

    Vaccines work with your body’s natural defences to help you safely develop immunity to diseases. This lowers your chances of getting certain diseases and suffering from their complications. For instance:

    • Hepatitis B vaccine lowers your risk of liver cancer.
    • HPV vaccine lowers your risk of cervical cancer.
    • Flu vaccine lowers your risk of flu-related heart attacks or other flu-related complications from existing health conditions like diabetes and chronic lung disease.
  • Vaccines lower your chance of spreading diseases.

    Some people in your family or community may not be able to get certain vaccines due to their age or health conditions. They rely on you to help prevent the spread of diseases.

    Infants, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems (like those undergoing cancer treatment) are especially vulnerable to infectious diseases. For example, newborn babies are too young to be vaccinated against whooping cough. Unfortunately, whooping cough can be very dangerous or even deadly for them. Pregnant women should get the Tdap vaccine during every pregnancy to help protect their babies from whooping cough. Anyone who is around babies should be up to date with their whooping cough vaccine.

  • You Can’t Afford to Get Sick

    You have a busy life and too much responsibilities to risk getting sick. Vaccines can help you stay healthy so you don’t miss work.
