Your Guide to Adult Vaccination

Where to Get Vaccines Getting all of the vaccines you need is an important step in keeping yourself and those around you healthy. If you have a healthcare provider, talk to him or her about which vaccinations you should have. If you do not have a healthcare provider, vaccines are also available at pharmacies, community health clinics, and health departments. They are also sometimes available at workplaces, and community locations such as schools and religious centers. Your state health department can also provide information about where vaccines are available. You can also visit the CDC’s Vaccine Finder at http://flushot.healthmap.org.
