Why Do Adults Need To Be Vaccinated?

ADULTS WITH HEALTH CONDITIONS

Every year thousands of adults in the India become seriously ill and are hospitalized because of diseases that vaccines can help prevent. Many adults even die from these diseases.  Even if you received the vaccines you needed as a child, the protection from some vaccines can wear off. You may also be at risk for other diseases due to your job, lifestyle, travel, or health conditions. 

Vaccines can lower your chance of getting certain diseases. Vaccines work with your body’s natural defences to help you safely develop immunity to disease. This lowers your chances of getting certain diseases and suffering from their complications.
