Specific Groups of People

While many vaccines are routinely safe and recommended for most people, each person has a unique medical profile that can affect decisions about vaccination.

People of certain ages, people with certain medical conditions, and those traveling abroad, among others, might have special vaccine needs. Work with your healthcare professional to choose the best health strategy for you, including choices about vaccination.

See www.cdc.gov/vaccines/spec-grps/default.htm for vaccine information for specific groups of people. Visit www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety for general vaccine safety information.
