Adult Vaccine Recommendations

There are a number of vaccines routinely recommended for adults in the U.S. based on age, health condition, occupation, lifestyle, and other risk factors. Each year, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) reviews the recommended adult (anyone over 18 years old) immunization schedule to ensure that the schedule reflects current recommendations for the licensed vaccines.
