Adult Vaccinations Is As Important As Children?

Adult vaccinations is as important as children.
Getting vaccinated is an important step in staying healthy. If you have DIABETES, talk with your doctor about getting your vaccinations up-to-date.

Diabetes, even if well managed, can make it harder for your immune system to fight infections, so you may be at risk for more serious complications from an illness compared to people without diabetes.

Some illnesses, like influenza, can raise your blood glucose to dangerously high levels.

People with diabetes have higher rates of hepatitis B than the rest of the population. Outbreaks of hepatitis B associated with blood glucose monitoring procedures have happened among people with diabetes.

People with diabetes are at increased risk for death from pneumonia (lung infection), bacteremia (blood infection) and meningitis (infection of the lining of the brain and spinal cord).

Immunization provides the best protection against vaccine-preventable diseases.

Vaccines are one of the safest ways for you to protect your health, even if you are taking prescription medications.

Vaccine side effects are usually mild and go away on their own. Severe side effects are very rare.
