Do You Need a Vaccination? Take the CDC’s Adult Vaccine Quiz

Vaccines are not just for children. In addition to the annual flu shot, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a number of immunizations for adults. This includes “catch-up” immunizations for vaccines not received during childhood, vaccinations that are specifically recommended for adults, and vaccines for travel and other specific circumstances.

Adults who are unsure whether then need to get vaccinated can take the CDC’s Adult Vaccine Quiz. Accurately completing the quiz will help you determine which vaccines you should discuss with your doctor. Other than whether you have received the chickenpox vaccine (to which you can answer, “Not sure”), you do not need any information about your medical or vaccination history in order to complete the quiz.

Additional Vaccine Resources for Adults

As an adult, it is important to make informed decisions about getting vaccinated. This means understanding which vaccines you need, the benefits of those vaccines, and the risks associated with particular vaccine ingredients and the vaccine administration process. For more information, we encourage you to read:

  • CDC-Recommended Vaccines by Age – The CDC publishes recommended vaccination schedules for children and adults. This link will take you to the CDC’s current recommendations for adults (individuals age 19 and older), which will help you understand which vaccinations you may want to consider.
  • CDC Adult Vaccination Fact Sheets – Find out why the CDC recommends certain specific vaccines for adults and learn about some special considerations for adults with asthma, COPD, diabetes and heart disease.
  • What are the Most-Common Vaccine Injuries? All vaccines carry the potential for certain illnesses and injuries. Before getting vaccinated, it is important to learn about the risks involved and how to identify the symptoms of vaccine-related illnesses and injuries.
  • Latest Statistics on Vaccine Injury Compensation Claims – Vaccine injuries are more common than most people realize. The federal government’s National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) provides a way for individuals diagnosed with vaccine-related illnesses and injuries to recover their medical expenses and other losses. 
  • Filing a Vaccine Injury Claim: Tips to Consider Before Hiring a Vaccine Injury Lawyer – If you are concerned that you may be experiencing symptoms of a vaccine-related illness or injury, there are some steps you should try to take right away. Here are five things you can do to maximize your chances of securing financial compensation through the VICP.

With certain exceptions, the CDC recommends that all adults get vaccinated. According to the CDC, the risks of being diagnosed with a vaccine-related illness or injury are far outweighed by the risks of foregoing immunization. But, while vaccine injuries may be uncommon, they are a reality, and all individuals who receive vaccinations should be aware of the risks involved and the remedies that are available.
