Adult Immunization

Be Wise ImmunizeImmunization is Proven Effective

Almost all cases of Tetanus and Diphtheria occur in adults who have been only partially immunized
or not immunized at all.

  • Adults need a booster for Tetanus & Diphtheria* every 10 Years
  • Booster shots are available at physicians’ offices & walk in clinics

*For adults who have not previously received a dose of acellular pertussis vaccine, it is recommended that a single diphtheria-tetanus (Td) booster be replaced by the combined diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis (dTap) vaccine.

**Call the Health Department or consult with your health care provider to determine which vaccines are important for you.
