Adults need vaccines too [Infographic]

(BPT) - Vaccine-preventable diseases can cause long term illness, hospitalization and death. In fact, nearly 50,000 adults die from vaccine-preventable diseases each year in the U.S. and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates the health care burden of adult vaccine-preventable diseases around $10 billion annually.

The CDC recommends that adults be vaccinated against several diseases, including pneumococcal disease, influenza, shingles, hepatitis B, tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis; yet adult immunization rates in the U.S. remain low.

Vaccines are an important step in helping to prevent certain diseases. Talk to your healthcare provider and learn more about adult vaccination in this infographic.
