Vaccines and immunizations are necessary to prevent diseases whether it be due to your age, job, lifestyle, travel, or health conditions. Vaccines contain the same antigens (germs) that cause diseases, but the antigens in vaccines are either killed or weakened to a state where they are non-infectious. But they are still antigens and when placed into you, your immune system produces antibodies that lead to immunity. During the different stages of a person's life, different vaccines are recommended for them. Look below to see which stage you are in and if you have received the recommended vaccinations.

If you are an adult, it is important to get your seasonal flu shot (influenza) every year.
Adults should also get the Tdap vaccine if they did not receive it in their youth.
The Td (tetanus, diphtheria) shot should also be received every 10 years.

Young adults should get the Tdap and the Td vaccines, and also the HPV vaccine.
The HPV vaccine protects against the human papillomaviruses that are the cause for most cervical cancers.
There are three types of HPV, which are Garadasil, Gardasil 9, and Cervarix. 

Children are recommended to have these basic 14 vaccines to prevent disease at an early age.
The vaccines include as follows:
chicken pox (varicella), diphtheria, polio, mumps, pneumococcal, rotavirus, rubella, tetanus, whooping cough, measles, flu, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and Hib.

Always make sure to keep up to date with your vaccines by speaking with a health professional.
