August is National Immunization Awareness Month, and most likely a cause that needle-weary folks would like to ignore. But immunizations help prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases.

Just like thousands of kids are doing to prepare for back-to-school, adults need to get their shots too to stay protected against serious illnesses like the flu, measles and tuberculosis.

But Which Immunizations Do I Need?

It’s important to know which shots you need and when to get them. Everyone age 6 months and older needs to get a flu shot every year. Other shots work best when they are given at certain ages.

Talk to your doctor or nurse to make sure that everyone in your family gets the shots they need.
