The Hepatitis B virus can cause lifelong infection, cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver, liver cancer, liver failure, and death. The best way to prevent Hepatitis B is by getting a Hepatitis B vaccine.

Measles, Mumps & Rubella (MMR)

CDC Recommendation:

  • All adults with no evidence of immunity should get 1 dose the MMR vaccine and 2 doses if in the high-risk group.

Meningitis

What is it?

Bacteria in the lining of the brain and spinal cord can cause meningitis. The meningitis bacteria are spread by cough and saliva. Infection can progress to death within 24-48 hours or lead to permanent disabilities such as hearing loss, brain damage, or loss of limbs. Vaccinations can help prevent this infection.

CDC Recommendation:

  • All children and adolescents should get the first dose at age 11 or 12 years and a second dose at age 16 years. 
  • Adolescents and young adults age 16 to 23 years may also be vaccinated with a meningococcal serogroup B vaccine, preferably at 16 to 18 years old.

Pneumonia

What is it?

Pneumonia is a serious, sometimes fatal, lung infection that causes fever, cough, or difficulty breathing. Pneumonia is spread by tiny droplets in the air after an infected person coughs or sneezes. You can protect yourself by getting vaccinated at any time of the year for long-term protection of the disease.

CDC Recommendation:

  • Babies and children younger than 2 years old should get the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine. 
  • Seniors should get two different pneumonia vaccines that work well together (pneumococcal conjugate and pneumococcal polysaccharide).

Shingles

What is it?

Shingles is a painful skin rash that typically produces a painful rash that blisters and can last up to 30 days. Shingles is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. If you’ve had chickenpox, you have the shingles virus inside you already, but it is inactive. As you get older, your immune system naturally weakens, increasing your risk of the virus reactivating as shingles. Vaccination is the best way to avoid getting shingles.

CDC Recommendation:

  • Healthy adults 50 years and older should get two doses of the inactive shingles vaccine, with the second administered 2 to 6 months after the first.
