Adults need vaccines as well ! Don't wait, Protect your family today !
As an adult, you are busy with life and have many responsibilities — but don’t forget to take care of yourself !
Today, everyone among-st adults is physically and mentally stressed out to cope with the ever increasing competition and expectations. Ever increasing working hours, improper meals at irregular times, coffee and junk food habits, congested work places, unhealthy lifestyles, lack of exercise and fresh air, everything is virtually pushing adults to decreased immunity. This makes adults vulnerable to the disease.
Also protection from some childhood vaccines can wear-off over time. Adults, thus become at risk for vaccine-preventable diseases due to their age, job, lifestyle, or health conditions. Every year, thousands of adults become seriously ill and are hospitalized because of diseases that vaccines can prevent. These diseases could turn fatal in many adults (>25% of deaths in adults is due to infectious diseases).
Old age again brings threat to get infections due to waning immunity in grand parents. This again could put the entire family into distress to handle them in illness. Moreover, they can spread the serious diseases in the family itself, children as well as adults due to their poor health.
Vaccines are recommended for adults on the basis of age, prior vaccinations, health conditions like asthma, diabetes,renal disease, liver disease etc, lifestyle, occupation, and travel. Adult vaccination has significant role in curbing morbidity, mortality, and disability among adults due to infectious diseases such as tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, human papilloma virus (HPV) causing cervical cancer in women, Japanese encephalitis, measles, mumps, rubella, meningococcus, pneumococcus, typhoid, flu ( including swine flu), and chickenpox.
The need for vaccines does not go away with growing age. Vaccination is recommended throughout life to prevent infectious diseases and their complications.
Always remember, Vaccination is not just for children!!!
