(HealthDayNews) -- Many adults don't know they are supposed to be immunized against a host of germs, thinking that vaccinations are just for kids.
But there are millions of adults in the United States who should be vaccinated for influenza, pneumonia, tetanus, diphtheria, hepatitis B and other diseases, according to the Immunization Action Coalition.
Getting immunized is a lifelong, life-protecting job, the group says. Make sure you keep your vaccinations up to date. Don't leave your doctor's office without asking about the vaccinations you need, especially if you plan to travel outside the United States.
