Unfortunately, with far too few receiving recommended vaccines, adults leave themselves and their loved ones vulnerable to serious diseases.

According to CDC data:

  • Only 20% of adults 19 years or older had received Tdap vaccination. - National Health Interview Survey 2014
  • Only 28% of adults 60 years or older had received shingles (herpes zoster) vaccination. - National Health Interview Survey 2014
  • Only 20% of adults 19 to 64 years at increased risk had received pneumococcal vaccination. - National Health Interview Survey 2014
  • Only about 44% of adults 18 years or older received a flu vaccine during the 2014-2015 flu season. - Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System 2014-2015
