LAS VEGAS -- Most of us know that kids need a lot of vaccines. Meanwhile, adults are missing many of their shots and that's putting some of our smallest Las Vegans at risk.
You never outgrow the need for vaccines. The specific immunizations you need as an adult are determined by factors such as your age, lifestyle, high-risk conditions, type and locations of travel, and previous immunizations. Throughout your adult life, you need immunizations to get and maintain protection against: flu, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, shingles, pneumococcal, HPV, etc.
