Weakened Immune System and Adult Vaccination
Vaccines are especially critical for people with special health conditions such as a weakened immune system.
If you have cancer or other immunocompromising conditions, talk with your doctor about:
- Influenza vaccine each year to protect against seasonal flu
- Tdap vaccine to protect against whooping cough and tetanus
- Pneumococcal vaccine (both types) to protect against pneumonia and other pneumococcal diseases
- HPV vaccine series to protect against human papillomavirus if you are a man or woman up to age 26 years
