Diabetes Type 1 and Type 2 and Adult Vaccination

Vaccines are especially critical for people with chronic health conditions such as diabetes Type 1 and Type 2.

If you have diabetes (Type I or Type II), talk with your doctor about:

  • Influenza vaccine each year to protect against seasonal flu
  • Tdap vaccine to protect against whooping cough and tetanus
  • Pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine to protect against pneumonia and other pneumococcal diseases
  • Hepatitis B vaccine series to protect against hepatitis B
  • Zoster vaccine to protect against shingles if you are 60 years and older
  • HPV vaccine to protect against human papillomavirus if you are a man or woman up to age 26
  • MMR vaccine to protect against measles, mumps, and rubella if you were born in 1957 or after and have not gotten this vaccine or have immunity to these diseases
  • Varicella vaccine to protect against chickenpox if you were born in 1980 or after and have not gotten two doses of this vaccine or have immunity to this disease
